Windows 7: Win 7 pro default volume per accounts on one machine

Win 7 pro default volume per accounts on one machine


This question is for my work machine.

I log into an account on the computer along with several other people.

I've recently ran into a problem that another coworker appears to be deaf and maxes out the volume on their account and it carries over to all over accounts. The person does not realize after several attempts to show them that maxing out the volume on the desktop doesn't help and that they should adjust the volume knob on the powered speakers to increase volume if they need to. Otherwise as soon as you turn on the speaker you get everything maxed out even at the lowest volume setting. (You have to turn the knob too get the speaker to turn on and when it turns on its at minimum volume.. )

So is there a way to separate everyone's volume preferences between accounts? I'm really unsure why her personal settings for volume carry over to everyone elses account, specifically me.. I think the person who installed her on the machine also gave her admin rights like myself but the deaf worker isn't as tech savvy as myself.

Any thoughts?

There may not be any way to get around this. Generally devices, such as sound, are "global" hardware devices and not controlled by user log in, like user access to certain programs or individual user data, etc.
