I just read this HTG article and was hoping to solve my problem with windows 10.
The article mentions:
An app’s volume level is configured as a percentage of your master volume level. For example, if you set your master volume to 10 and Chrome to 100, Chrome will play at a volume level of 10. If you set your master volume to 10 and Chrome to 50, Chrome will play at a volume level of 5.
That’s how it’s supposed to work, that’s how it has always worked in Windows 7.
My problem is:
I set Master Volume, for example at 5%.
I open a new application (or chrome tab with sound), and it has a volume of its own at 100%, and I have to manually turn down the volume on the application.
Is there a way to cap ANY volume coming out of windows 10? It’s really irritating to know that any moment a very loud sound can come out of the computer.
