Is it possible to bind volume controls to a keyboard that doesn't have default volume control buttons? Answered

And if so, how?
I just bought a keyboard that doesn't have any preset volume control keys, could i somehow bind the volume control function to two keys i don't ever use?

Look into AutoHotkey.  It will let you set up advanced macros to connect just about any key combination to just about any action, including system volume.

I can't find one that does -exactly- what you want, but here are a couple 'ibles that should help:

- How to use Autohotkey
- Use Autohotkey to control volume with the mouse

If you're talking about a musical keyboard and not a computer keyboard, then the answer is most probably, no.  They are digital and actually use a switch instead of a pot to change the vol.  The start up vol. is set in the rom.  There might be a setup menu that would allow you to preset your start up vol.

It is a drag to have to reset the vol. every time you turn the darn thing on.
