Using Windows 7 Volume Control on Windows 10

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.

  1. Open the Registry Editor using regedit
  2. Go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE > SOFTWARE > Microsoft > Windows NT > CurrentVersion > MTCUVC
  3. If you don’t find MTCUVC, create a new one: Right-click on CurrentVersion and choose New > Key, enter the name MTCUVC
  4. Right-click MTCUVC and choose New > DWORD (32-bit) Value
  5. Name it EnableMtcUvc and leave the value as 0

If you find this useful, let me know.
