Windows 7: How to get System Tray Sound icon to show mixer

How to get System Tray Sound icon to show mixer

When I click on the system tray icon for the sound, it always comes up with the overall speaker level and then you have to click the mixer button to get that to show up, I was wondering if there was a way so that when I clicked the system tray icon, it instantly showed the mixer for all the different programs.

Thanks for any help in advance.

Hello Dylan, and welcome to Seven Forums.

If you like, you could use the Volume Mixer shortcut from the tutorial below to make it easier to open directly. You could pin the shortcut to the taskbar, or use where you like.
