Is there a way to assign a default volume to an application when it starts?

I work from home, and I use a conference tool to talk to people in the office. Every time I start it, it defaults to maximum volume. If I don't quickly open the sound control panel and turn it down, it will blast the sounds of my coworkers at top volume until I do.

If I reduce the volume, close the application, then re-open it, it resets to maximum volume. Is there a way to change that?

I'm using Windows 10 Pro, 64 bit.

Slightly related.


In Windows 10 , there is a facility to use custom volumes for individual apps which is Volume Mixture option which can be accessed by right-clicking on the volume icon to bring up the menu which has the option. You can even use Ear Trumpet which is a freeware for windows for the purpose specified by you.

More information and other methods can be found in the Link.

Give it a try.

  • Thanks for this - I have tried the Volume Mixer. Using that, I can adjust the volume of just my noisy app, and it works fine. The problem is, that if I quit the app, then start it again, it always reverts to maximum volume, and I have to set it again. Do you know a way to automatically define a default volume? – JosephStyons Oct 25 '17 at 20:15
  • Have you tried Ear Trumpet which I mentioned ? you can refer the link provided. – NWishAll Oct 26 '17 at 6:13
  • I tried it today, and I like it a lot; the user interface is an improvement over the Windows audio. However, it does not "remember" the volume setting between launches. If I lower the volume, close the app, then relaunch, it still goes back to 100. Thanks for the tip though. – JosephStyons Oct 26 '17 at 16:47
