Can you please change the Volume2 program so, that Volume2 Peak Meter settings (Movable, Stay on top & Snap to edges) will be kept/saved?
Cauze some games, like warthunder, will keep switchin to the desktop when Stay On Top is enabled.
And in current version, disabling this option, will be enabled again after a system reboot.
Thanks so much.
Функционал у проги превосходный, идеальный интерфейс. Золотые руки у Вас и большое сердце, т.к. сделали её DonateWare.
I'm just looking for a way to reduce the default volume OSD timeout without changing the global notification timeout.
(5 sec. for a new e-mail notification is pretty short for example)
The Volume2 OSD timeout can be configured, but i can't see the sense in this when the default volume OSD is still there for 13 seconds.
You can customize the volume increment/decrement steps with this. Was searching for something like this anyway.
And it has a useful side effect - the volume overlay gets disabled as soon as you run it.
Makes a perfect pair with Volume2.
Can you please disable this in the next version?
You normally don't reconfigure the program on every reboot, so it should start in the system tray.

recommended it to anybody interested.
I am wondering if U could add Opacity to the Peek Meter in Next Version.
I am using a logitech k400r. I installed the latest version of volume2, but my trackpad is acting strange. Its not running smooth and the left click keeps activating. I can barely type without it moving, please help!
I have been using this software for more than 01 year. Working flawlessly.
Thanks for making this awesome tool and making my computer life a bit more easier.
By the way, I've designed a OSD skin for Volume2. Pls check it out HERE
edit- looks like it has something to do with the "X-Mouse Button Control" program I have installed. When I disable X-Mouse, Volume2 wheel volume controls work fine. weird. everything was compatible before i updated windows.
It just loads, and stays there.
The F12 key does not work as a shortcut, even on version 126.96.36.199 (Win 7 x64). I went to your website and saw your workaround: I added F12 and "Shift + F12" to the Low Level Shortcuts in the config.ini file and it now works perfectly.
Just a feature suggestion: Volume2 notices when you change your default playback device. Could it be possible that the mouse/keyboard shortcuts change volume for the current default device? I often change between my devices (headphone/speakers) and the shortcuts only work for the specified "audio device" in Volume2 options. I use the alternate audio device function but I'd like to always use the same shortcut. For example I'd like F11 to always be volume UP, for my speakers AND my headphones. Not 2 different shortcuts.
Finally, you should promote your software more. It's absolutely fantastic but it's not well known outside of Russia, I had a really hard time finding it but I think it's easily the best volume manager / OSD software at the moment!
Sorry and kudos again for your great app!
