Microadjustment of Windows (7, if it matters) volume sliders

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Normally windows volume sliders go from 1 to 100, although some multimedia apps offer their own volume slider for finer tuning.

Recently I started using bluetooth to transmit audio to my headphones, but now the volume blasts my head off even at 1% volume. In some video games it is intolerable and I play them muted.

For this reason I'm wondering if there is an app out there that can force smaller volume adjustments upon apps (kind of like how there are apps to force gfx settings, but for audio)?

What I recommend doing is, turn the media player's or the game's built-in volume down to a very low level.

I'm speaking of games that have no in-built volume, hence the question.

I didn't know that. I thought that all games had a built-in volume. That's why I made my recommendation.
