I don’t know about you but I’ve always wanted to do this, and I’ve found the perfect utility to do it. Volumouse is a simple but useful utility that lets you control system sound volume with your mouse wheel. The best part about it - your mouse wheel not only be limited to volume control. The application lets you define when exactly the mouse should control the sound volume. For example,  you can tell the application to adjust volume when alt key is pressed - in all other cases mouse wheel will be used for regular functions such as web page scrolling etc. Volumouse is a product of Nirsoft – it’s completely free and is not bundled with any unwanted cr@pware.


As you can see from the above screenshot, you can hand over volume control to mouse even for specific scenarios such as ‘Windows media player is focused’. You can set one to five of such conditions. Further customizations can be made to the way volume is altered. You can fine tune these settings and trust me, you’ll love it once you get used to Volumouse.


Volumouse is totally free and is only 115kb in file size.
