I had a Logitech MX1100 mouse that I was using to change my computer's volume -- I mapped the DPI rocker switch to volume change (repeating). But that mouse has now been replaced with a Performance MX mouse, which unfortunately, doesn't have that rocker switch anymore.
I've been thinking about other ways I could map volume change to the mouse. I thought about the possibility of holding a modifier switch (like shift) while using the scrollwheel to change it, but can't find possible settings to do so.
I've also wondered about the possibility of holding a modifier switch, holding right click (for example), and then moving the mouse either up or down to increase/decrease the volume.
I'm also looking for a method that can be universally across the system. For instance, on my old mouse, I could use the DPI rocker switch to adjust volume anywhere, even in the middle of a game. I'm wondering if some type of "fundamental"/universal action, such as a right click from a mouse, is going to be hooked/captured by the forefront program, thereby pulling the carpet out from underneath the volume change function (modification).
