VolumeTouch: Adjust your PC volume with your mouse

VolumeTouch is a utility that replaces the sound icon in the Windows system tray with a volume meter that gives you a live preview of your volume settings. But that's just the tip of the iceberg. The program also lets you adjust your system volume using your mouse.

Here's how it works, you hit the Ctrl+Shift buttons and then move your mouse scrollwheel up and down to adjust the volume. If you don't like those button combos, you can choose a different key combination, or choose a different mouse behavior. VolumeTouch lets you control the volume by moving the mouse up and down or left and right as well.

You can also choose one of 5 skins for the tray icon. Some skins look better than others, but each gives you a real time view of your volume level.
