Volume Monitor Description
The standard system tray volume icon isn’t particularly helpful if you need to know the exact sound level, as it only displays three steps that aren’t that informative.
Volume Monitor is a very simple application that allows you to view the volume of the primary output device in percentage form, using a system tray icon.
Lightweight program that requires no installation
Nothing needs to be set up before using this application, as the only thing you have to do is unpack the archive and run the executable file. There is no option to have the program run at launch, so you need to add it to the startup list manually.
Volume Monitor is a very small app, and its resource usage is pretty much negligible. It can easily replace the standard volume indicator if you want to get more accurate information.
Useful app that lacks customization options
Sadly, you cannot change anything about the text size and color in the current release. The default white font is very small, so it is likely that many users will want to increase its dimensions.
The standard white color looks great on Windows 10, but those who use older operating systems or themes would probably like to have more options at their disposal.
Simple app that lets you view audio volume in percentage form
Whether you want to replace the standard volume indicator or just get some additional info, Volume Monitor is a nifty little app that can certainly prove helpful. It displays the audio level of the current output device in percentage form, thus ensuring you always know exactly how loud your PC is without having to click the Windows volume indicator icon.
However, it would be great if the application offered a few more customization options, as it is currently not possible to change the default font, text size or color.
