Controlling the Volume From The Task Bar (Windows 98)
Did you ever wish you could quickly adjust the volume on your computer's speakers without having to find your sound board's mixer program, or without having to stand up and manually adjust the control on the speaker? Windows 98 has a way to add an applet to the Taskbar that will allow you to quickly tweak your speaker's volume. Here's how.
1 - Click Start
2 - Select Settings/Control Panel
3 - Double Click the Multimedia icon
4 - Select the Audio tab
5 - Select the Show volume control on Taskbar option.
Once enabled, clicking the speaker icon on the Taskbar will launch the volume control slider. Double-clicking the speaker icon will launch the sound boards mixer program.
-In most cases the small speaker icon is located in the system tray by default.
