Windows 7: Windows Volume Gadgets

Windows Volume Gadgets

A problem I've had ever since I got Windows 7, is the operation of any volume gadget. I've tried a number of volume gadgets but all have the same issue. When my machine first boots up, the gadget will not work properly and the only to correct it is to remove and re-install it. Is this just a bug with Win7 or is there something I can to to make it load properly on start up? The problem is when you adjust the volume it will just turn itself all the way down and when you adjust it won't stay where you put it. Let me know if you have any suggestions.

Does the Windows 7 built in volume control work as it should?

Yes it works fine. It's as if there is a connection issue from only the gadget.

Hey DMHolt57. I took a look at Volumouse v2.00 Beta 3, but that isn't really a gadget is it? Is there something I'm missing here?

It is not a desktop gadget, but has a lot of settings choices that just work...if you use a wheel mouse, try it, your desktop will thank you for using one less gadget...

Alright, I just installed Volumouse and like what I'm seeing so far. If it works after a couple of reboots I'l call it a success!
