Below are 2 different sets of steps
for creating volume level keystrokes:
1. Open Keyboard Manager
without any applications / programs open to make sure you
land on, Default, when you open Keyboard Manager. Do
this by pressing,
Jaws key + F2, press the letter, K, until you have
Keyboard Manager highlighted, & press enter. If you
don't have, Default, highlighted when opening
the keyboard manager press the letter, D, until you do.
2. Find the following to assign keystrokes to them:
*Note: None, means that there is not a keystroke
assigned to these functions / tasks.
3. On each of these functions / tasks press, Control + A,
to open an edit field to insert the keystroke you would
like to use for this particular function
/ task. *Note: Make sure not to press any other keys
other than the keystroke you want!
4. After entering your desired keystroke tab one time,
and there's a checkbox for assigning this keystroke to
desktop keys only, usually people will
5. Tab to, Okay, Press ENTER, and choose OK in the
confirmation dialog which appears.
6. You'll be returned to the list view of scripts. Use
the same steps with the other functions / tasks listed
7. Close Keyboard Manager with, Alt + F4.
Take care. Mike. Go Dodgers!
Steps #2 that I haven't
tried With either Windows 7 or 10, but supposedly work:
I found this on the Microsoft Answer page from Googling
the question. I did it and named it, creatively enough,
volume, and assigned control+alt+v, which
gets you to the master volume control on my Windows 10
Then, alt+x gets you to
the mixer controls where you can adjust programs
Here is what I found:
Yes,you can create a
Master Volume Shortcut and also assign a Shortcut Key.
Right click on a empty
area on desktop, and click on New and Shortcut.
Paste the following in to
the location of the item area:-
Click Next button and give
a name to the Shortcut and click Finish.
Now You right click on it
and select Properties.
Click Shortcut tab.
Assign your desired
shortcut key like F8 or F9 in the Shortcut Key area.
