This free application lets you adjust your system's volume, though its chief function comes standard in most operating systems. Rather than having an interface, VolumeTouch places an icon in your system tray. You'll be able to open the Windows sound recorder and the audio properties dialog box, and the program it offers mouse controls and hot-key combinations to control your speaker's volume, though neither worked during our trial. You can also mute your volume and change the program's icon to another image. Since most operating systems come with built-in volume controls that work much better than VolumeTouch's, we don't see any advantage to downloading this program.
