SoundVolumeView v2.26

A simple tool for Windows Vista/7/8/2008/10 that displays general information and current volume level for all active sound components on your system, and allows you to mute and unmute them instantly.

SoundVolumeView also allows you to save a sound profile into a file, containing the current volume level and the mute/unmute state of all sound components, as well as the default sound devices, and then later, load the same file to restore exactly the same volume levels and settings.
There is also extensive command-line support, which allows you to save/load profiles, change current volume of every sound component, and mute/unmute every sound component, without displaying any user interface.

System Requirements
This utility works on Windows Vista, Windows 7, Windows 8, Windows 2008, and Windows 10. Both 32-bit and 64-bit systems are supported.
Windows XP and older systems are not supported.


Versions History
Version 2.26:

You can now use any variable inside the .cfg file (SoundVolumeView.cfg) in order to set the configuration from command line, for example:
SoundVolumeView.exe /SaveFileEncoding 3 /ShowUnpluggedDevices 1 /ShowDisabledDevices 1

Start Using SoundVolumeView
SoundVolumeView doesn't require any installation process or additional dll files. In order to start using it, simply run the executable file - SoundVolumeView.exe

After running SoundVolumeView, the main window is displays all sound items found in your systems. There are 3 types of items: devices, subunits, and application volume.
For every item, the current volume level is displayed in percent unit. For devices and subunits, the volume level is also displayed in Decibel. For subunits, the volume level is displayed for every channel separately.

Increase/Decrease/Mute Volume
In the main window of SoundVolumeView, you can select one or more items, and then mute, unmute, increase, or decrease the volume of selected items, using accelerator keys:

Mute - F7
Unmute - F8
Mute/Unmute switch - F9
Decrease volume 1% - Ctrl+1
Increase volume 1% - Ctrl+2
Decrease volume 5% - Ctrl+3
Increase volume 5% - Ctrl+4
Decrease volume 10% - Ctrl+5
Increase volume 10% - Ctrl+6

Sound Profiles
SoundVolumeView allows you to save all your current sound settings into a sound profile filename, and then load it later when you want to restore these settings.
The sound profile file stores the following information:

Volume level of all active sound components on your system. (Devices, Subunits, and application volume) For Subunits, the volume level of every channel is stored separately.
Mute/Unmute state of all active sound components on your system. (Devices, Subunits, and application volume)
Default render/capture device.

You can save and load sound profiles by using the 'Save Sound Profile' and 'Load Sound Profile' options under the File menu, or by using the /SaveProfile and /LoadProfile command-line options. There is also a recent menu located under the File menu, which allows you to easily load the last 10 sound profiles you used, as well as you can also load the recent 5 sound profiles from the tray menu (If the tray icon is turned on)

Be aware that sound profiles are bound to specific computer and its devices. You cannot save a sound profile in one computer and then load it into another computer.


Creating Desktop Shortcuts
Starting from version 2.00, you can easily create shortcuts on desktop that will execute one of the following actions: Mute,Unmute,Mute/Unmute Switch,Disable,Enable,Disable/Enable Switch, Set Default Device (Console, Multimedia, Communications), Increase Volume, Decrease Volume.
In order to create the desktop shortcut, simply select the desired item, and then go to File -> Create Desktop Shortcut and choose the desired action to execute when the shortcut is activated. You can also use the 'Create Desktop Shortcut' submenu in the right-click context menu.
The following actions can also be used with application items: Mute,Unmute,Mute/Unmute Switch,Increase Volume, Decrease Volume. For example, you can create 'Mute/Unmute Switch' shortcut for Chrome Web browser that will mute the sound of Chrome if it's turned on and unmute if it's turned off.
After creating the shortcut, you can right-click on it, choose 'Properties' and then choose the desired key combination to activate the shortcut.

Get sound level information from command line
If you want to get the current sound volume or mute status from command-line, there are 2 different methods you can use:

Use the get commands of SoundVolumeView - /GetPercent /GetPercentChannel, /GetDecibel, /GetDecibelChannel, /GetMute : These commands return the desired sound level information inside the Exit Status of the program. Because the Exit Status is an integer value, the percent value is multiplied by 10 and the Decibel value is multiplied by 1000. You can get more information about these commands in the 'Command-Line Options' section.
You can get the desired value inside a batch file by using the %errorlevel% variable, for example.
SoundVolumeView.exe /GetPercent Speakers
echo %errorlevel%

Be aware that the above example only works when saving the commands into a batch file and then running the batch file. If you try to execute it without a batch file, you'll only get zero result. It's not a bug in SoundVolumeView, it's just the way that the %errorlevel% variable works.
Use the combination of GetNir tool and SoundVolumeView to send the desired value to stdout.
For example, the following command sends to stdout the current sound volume (in percent) of a device that its name is 'Speakers':
SoundVolumeView.exe /stab "" | GetNir "Volume Percent" "Name=Speakers && Type=Device"

The following command sends to stdout the current mute status (From the 'Muted' column) of the device that its friendly name is Realtek High Definition Audio\Device\Speakers\Render:
SoundVolumeView.exe /stab "" | GetNir "Muted" "Command-LineFriendlyID='Realtek High Definition Audio\Device\Speakers\Render'"



Command-Line Options
You can use the command-line options below to change the volume level and mute/unmute status of every sound component on your system.
In the [Name] parameter , you can specify one of the following fields:

The name of the item, as appeared under the 'Name' column. (If you have multiple items with identical name, you should use the ID field.)
The ID of the item, as appeared under the 'Item ID' column.
The ID of the item, as appeared under the 'Command-Line Friendly ID' column (This ID is generated by SoundVolumeView and it's designed to be more friendly than the 'Item ID' column)
You can also specify only a part of the 'Name' or 'Item ID'. For example, if the device name is 'Speakers1', specifying 'Speakers' will also work.
For sound devices (Type = 'Device'), you can also use the value specified under the 'Device Name' column.
For application items (type = 'Application), you can also specify the process filename, (for example: firefox.exe) or the process ID (for example: 3271).
You can specify 'AllAppVolume' to change the volume of all applications at once. For example, in order to set the volume of all applications to 100%:
SoundVolumeView.exe /SetVolume AllAppVolume 100
You can specify 'Focused' to change the volume of focused application.
You can specify 'FocusedName' to change the volume of all instances of focused application.
You can specify "DefaultCaptureDevice" and "DefaultRenderDevice" in order to refer the default Console render/capture device. For default Communications device, you can specify DefaultCaptureDeviceComm and DefaultRenderDeviceComm, and for default Multimedia device you can specify DefaultRenderDeviceMulti and DefaultCaptureDeviceMulti.
