Who stole my volume control? HELP!

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Many times when there's some flash-based item in focus, I lose the ability to control the volume of my computer with my keyboard. I have to click somewhere off the game/video/whatever to control my volume. It's maddening. I don't know what update I installed that's doing it but it prolly happened around 6 months ago. It wasn't too big of a deal until I recently started playing games on itch/kongregate/etc again. I'd really like to know who's responsible so I could twak his ear repeatedly while he tries to work but I'll be satisfied if I could figure out which update it was so I could uninstall it.
APU what?

I know a lot of Java applications do this, I know OpenOffice/LibreOffice in Windows does this, but I'm unsure about flash.

What browser do you use? This is a stab in the dark, but I know Chrome's pepper-flash will often cause problems. If you are using Chrome you could try going to chrome://plugins (I think that's the one) and then disable the pepper-flash option. If your volume control returns then you've found the culprit. Again though, this is just a stab in the dark. Good luck, and let me know if you need any help.

My G710+ does this sometimes. I think it's a Logitech software issue as this never happened with my MS Sidewinder X6. Since you didn't have this issue until 6 months ago, try using an older version of the Logitech gaming software and see if that fixes it.
