How to Get the Old Volume Control UI in Windows 10

  • MORE

One of the more subtle changes in Windows 10 was that of a new volume control UI. Seemingly minor, the change rubbed a lot of people the wrong way, and now they’re clamoring to get back the controls they came to love after years of using Windows. Don’t worry, guys, it’s an easy fix.

    This hack to the reg doesn't work anymore, I don't know if one of the updates made it impossible to do, but I was wondering if you know a new way. By the way, in your description at #5, you listed to different NEW key names (MTUCVC first and MTCUVC second) I am thinking you meant the second one but and that's what I named it, so I am wondering if that is the problem or something different?

    You know humanity is going to come to an end when people start complaining about ridiculous things such as a volume slider. It's a volume slider guys. Relax.
