@freakazoid: Thanks, you're right! My mistake.

@Ennovy v1.1.8.464 appears to be a beta version. Perhaps we should change the version back to the last release version - v1.1.7.449?

Can't believe I didn't know about this app!

I was getting sick and tired of Windows going up or down in volume increments of 2%. Why can't we set the increments in Windows by default? Anyway, with this app, I can set the increment to 1% and also override the default volume media keys to use Volume2's defaults as well. Bonus is you can also use your mouse's scrollwheel on the taskbar to control the volume.

All that and it only uses less than 2MB of RAM and less than 0.2% of CPU when active. Greatly recommended!

This is a wonderful little app. The skins are beautiful. Sinple but lots of options if you want them. Works fine on win8.

Changed download URL to his deviantart page which is in english. Softpedia hasn't updated yet but I'll change it back when they do. I assume its preferred to download from softpedia because of the more persistent download mirrors.

You are wrong ...

1. "I cannot change language, it is not in settings"

Language of the program can be changed through 'Settings' dialogue. You need to select the second item from bottom in the list on the left side of a window (next to the flag icon). You will see the list of supported languages of the interface.

2. "it PERMANENTLY removes system volume icon"

You also can return a system volume icon through 'Settings' dialogue. Select in the list on the left side of a window the fourth item from the bottom (next to the monitor icon). Then, in the right part of the 'Settings' window, select the second option from the top.

That's all...

Terrible app, after few weeks of using the gui is in russian language(and I cannot change language, it is not in settings) and it PERMANENTLY removes system volume icon. Stay away!
