Certain PC apps are louder/quieter than others. What should I do?

Updated by on Mar 1, 2024

If you have one application whispering in your ear while others are super loud, here is how you equalize them!


  1. Right-click on the speaker in the bottom right corner of your screen
  2. Select "open volume mixer"
  3. You can adjust the levels of different apps right from here

  4. Windows 10:

    Windows 10 volume mixer sound settings

    Windows 11:

    windows 11 volume mixer sound settings
  5. Hit the "X" button in the top right corner when you're done
