    Would like to make a keyb shortcut for muting volume


    Is there one already? If there isn't one how do I go about create one? I do not want to buy a multimedia keyboard just for this functionality. Thanks in advance for any help you are able to provide.

    Click on the speaker icon in the System Tray then click on the small speaker to mute. Two clicks, same as launching a Desktop icon unless you add the shortcut to the Taskbar.

    This is what I was doing. Too many steps. Wanted one key on the keyboard to mute/unmute. Stormy's link in perfect. Thanks for your help though.
