    Is it possible to adjust the volume by using keyboard keys? So instead of going to "volume control" , I just press a key to adjust the volume.
    Without installing any extra programs...

    In WMP F10 increases the volume, F9 decreases and F8 mutes. However these keys don't work if WMP is minimized. If you get AutoHotkey I have some scripts that will control the volume in WMP even when minimized.

    wmp = windows media player? I don't use that prog. I meant, adjusting the "volume control panel", so not when using any program.

    I don't think there's anyway to do it with Windows, but you could use AutoHotkey to write your own script or get this freeware volume control program called Sound Control.

    Why not buy a keyboard that has those buttons? My Logitech keyboard has volume up & down butons as well as mute and other specialty buttons.

    Instead of using a new prog (which i try to avoid), I noticed some hotkeys on the keyboard, which have been set by Packard-Bell. For example, "email"- hotkey automatically starts outlook. Is it possible to set any of those keys to adjusting the sound?
