Windows 7: How To Let The Volume Change When Plugging In Headphones?

How To Let The Volume Change When Plugging In Headphones?

Hi all,

Running Windows 7 64-bit (up-to-date) on an Acer Aspire 6930G here with RealTek HD audio (driver up-to-date). When I plug in my headphones, I'd like the sound level to be low (around 2 or 3), but when using the built-in laptop speakers the volume needs to be at around 50.

Is there any way to make the volume behave the same way it does on an iPhone or iPod Touch when plugging in headphone?

For example: When you plug in your headphones in an iPod Touch, you can set the volume to, say 50%. Now when you unplug your headphones you can change the volume level to 100%, now when you plug in your headphones again the volume will be 50% again.

Sorry if this question has been answered before, I've tried the search function, but did not find the answer.

Thanks in advance ,

Hi qwaszxqwaszx welcome to Seven Forums.

I must admit, I am not familiar with the Realtek sound program, as I use the default Windows one.

However, on my machine at least, when I click the "volume" icon on the bottom right hand corner (next to the clock) it remember's different settings for headphones and speakers, the two are completely independent. Is this not the case for you?

Unfortunately not, I do however get a notification from the Realtek driver when I plug in headphones or remove them.

Thanks for the reply, but in my case it always says "Speakers", with headphones plugged in or without.

Did you try clicking the "mixer" Icon on the sound bar? With headphones plugged in, this should bring up the screen that p5bdkw posted.

Thanks for the reply.

Yes, I did try clicking the mixer icon. But with headphones plugged in or without headphones plugged in, it always says "Speakers (High Definition Audio)"...

Same here...

I know the last post was almost a year ago, but I just wanted to say that my old Toshiba laptop had what you are looking for built in, and my new one doesn't.
