Autohotkey volume script/bar for Vista, 7, 8

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

Hey,

 

here's a simple AutoHotkey volume script: AutoHotkey.ahk

Requires Windows Vista, 7 or 8. Install AutoHotkey, place the downloaded ahk file in your Documents folder, run Autohotkey (it hides in the tray and loads Documents\AutoHotkey.ahk automatically).

 

 

I wrote this mainly to get a configurable increase in volume steps (vol_Step is set to 0.5 dB by default), but also added a little bar to show the volume:

 

 

The bar display can be disabled. Just check the lines after ; configuration, and edit them to your liking.

 

 

Right now it works by pressing multimedia key Volume_Up, Volume_Down and Volume_Mute (or Win+End), but this can be changed as well. Might interfere with some other OSD software - haven't checked.

Added scalar (in %) control and display options. With both options set to scalar (the default atm) it works more like the Windows volume control slider.
