VolumeTouch is an easy-to-use and practical Windows utility that replaces the classical volume controller in the system tray area and provides users with extra options to seamlessly adjust the computer's volume level.
It does not come packed with complex features or configuration settings, which means that it can be figured out by all types of users, even newcomers in the software community.
Accessibility via the system tray
The setup procedure takes little time and minimal user assistance. At startup, VolumeTouch creates an icon in the system tray area to replace the regular volume controller.
Select a hotkey and mouse mode
By opening its context menu it is possible to open the volume controlling and sound recording tools of Windows, adjust the audio properties (playback, recording, sounds, communications), select a key combination for tweaking the volume quicker than normally, as well as pick the mouse mode between wheel scroll, vertical and horizontal mouse position. In addition, you can change the tray icon skin, mute the volume via a hotkey (cannot be changed), as well as disable VolumeTouch instead of exiting it. There are no other noteworthy options available here.
Evaluation and conclusion
As expected, the tool does not put a strain on PC performance, since it runs on low CPU and RAM. There were no kind of issues in our tests, as it did not hang, crash or pop up error messages. Although it is not particularly feature-rich, VolumeTouch is simple to use and gets the job done.
