Update April 9, 2017: The updated version of Windows 10 Volume Control now supports multiples output sound devices, which makes this post pointless.
The main reason why I prefer the Volume Control from Windows 7 is because it allows me to adjust two or more different output sound devices at the same time. This customization is not obvious, so I decided to write a blog post about it. I hope you find it useful as much as I did.
Changing the Windows Registry
The only way I found to do this is via Windows Registry.
- Open the Registry Editor using regedit
- Go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE > SOFTWARE > Microsoft > Windows NT > CurrentVersion > MTCUVC
- If you don’t find MTCUVC, create a new one: Right-click on CurrentVersion and choose New > Key, enter the name MTCUVC
- Right-click MTCUVC and choose New > DWORD (32-bit) Value
- Name it EnableMtcUvc and leave the value as 0
If you find this useful, let me know.
