    Change (reduce) maximum volume?


    So, the system volume in the system tray goes from 1-100. 1 is comfortable. 3 is loud. 6 is ear-splitting.

    Is there anyway I can redefine the values for the system volume and set the maximum to like... 10?

    Any time I hit the volume buttons on my keyboard to lower the volume, it goes from 1 to 0 and I can't hear anything, so I hit the volume up button and it goes from 0 to 3 and it's way too loud.

    Right now, I have the volume set to about 3 most of the time, with individual apps' volume controls set really low (like a game set to volume "0.5" out of 100).

    This is just ridiculous. There must be a way to redefine the value for the system volume. Some settings file I can edit or something, if not a nice GUI method.

    Thanks, this is exactly the effect I want!

    ...except...

    I set the level to "1" and when my volume (in system tray) is at "3" it's still a bit loud, but okay, and at 10 it's teeth-grindingly loud. I need to somehow do this same thing, but with MORE POWER!

    Is there anything else I might try to compound the effect?

    Edit: Other than using per-app volume settings (where available)?

    Actually... nevermind...

    The volume buttons seem to change "levels" as well, so if I set the level to 1 and change the volume with my keyboard, I see the "levels" go up as well.
