Quick Tip: Restore the older Volume Mixer in Windows 11

Technology Jun 2, 2022

Recently Microsoft released an update for Windows 11 that doesn't allow you to open the older version of the Volume Mixer.

Old Volume Mixer
New Volume Mixer within 'Settings'

To restore the old Volume Mixer, go to:

Start >> Type into the search box sndvol.exe and press enter.

This will open it up. Once it's open, Right-click on the icon on the taskbar and click 'Pin to taskbar' and drag it beside the Start button for easy access.

Way better than using the clunky 'Settings' menu.
