Windows Vista Volume Control Skin

Post by Mytch94 »

Total and complete Rainmeter noob here. Downloaded it 2 days ago and have little to no clue about what I'm doing. I've managed to figure out a bit on my own, but I'm not sure of reliable places to find new skins. I'm looking for, specifically a volume control button, similar to the original windows vista volume control which lets you decide the volume of each individual program you are running. If this is not possible a simple volume control would be great too. I'm not even sure how to check my version of Rainmeter, but I do have a picture of the skin I'm using here

. I'm currently running Windows Vista Home Premium.

I have read the "How To Ask For Help" thread, but chances are I've missed something. If there is anything else you need to know, please ask.

Thanks in advance

I don't understand. What has that got to do with this?

He posted what you need to know.
And as far as I know of, volume controls haven't really worked too well in Rainmeter.
There are a few things you can do, such as a make Rainmeter send a command to an external application such as NirCmd. But I don't think there's anything you can do just in Rainmeter.
Search the forum for more about it.

Just giving you a link to the basics. There is nothing yet in the Rainmeter world that can take advantage of the per-application settings of Win7 yet.
