How to Change volume level only with mousewheel

To change the volume level on Linux just put the little arrow-click on the audio icon on the taskbar and use the mouse wheel without having to click. This is possible in Windows Seven, changing some configuration in the system?

To change volume level is to change volume level in some application. So for example winamp and VLC media player will allow you to scroll the wheel to adjust volume change, this is set in the preferences of those applications. Like wise in other media applications, you just need to fiddle around. I don't know about doing this for the desktop/system sounds.

That would be a cool feature, but it would have to be coded to do that and would probably be enabled by default if it was...

Try VolumeMouse, It will control the volume by using the mouse wheel.

I have mine set to work when the mouse is over the desktop, it works great.
Optionally it can be set to work other ways ie. with the mouse on one screen edgee
etc.

I highly recommend it.

Hope this works for you,
