Windows 7: Creating a Shortcut direct to a control panel sub-level window

Creating a Shortcut direct to a control panel sub-level window

I find that I'm wanting to change the Microphone level quite often and wonder if I can somehow create a shortcut direct to it, so it's a 1-click thing, straight to the Levels tab.

Currently I have to click about 7 times to get to that tab. Is it possible to create a shortcut to a drilled down level like that? If not, does anyone know if there's a way to find where in the registry the Level number is stored ? Then I can at least create a few preset .reg files that I can click on to set it without even going into that Levels dialog.

Hello ddd990,

If you like for now, you could use the shortcut in the tutorial below to open to the "Recording" tab in Sound properties to save a few clicks.

Yes it does helps some. About 50% of my clicks are gone

I see now that it's come up before, and this is as close as anyone got.

I'd love to know where Windows is storing this recording level value though. It's got to be either in the registry or in a file.
