    Volume Control

    Hi Guys,

    anyone know if its possible to get an on screen volume control when you are playing music. At the moment I can only see how to start and stop music from playing.

    I can turn the volume up and down via my keyboard but would like to do it on screen via my mouse.

    If I drop to my old windows desktop (which I'm desperately trying not to do) I can control it with the speaker icon in my taskbar but I can't for the life of me work out how to adjust volume on screen.

    Use your volume control from the keyboard, and when the volume screen pops up, use your mouse to adjust the volume.

    Stroll to the top right and activate the Win 8 menu. Volume control is under "Setting"
