3 Ways To Set Maximum Volume Limit In Windows 103 Ways To Set Maximum Volume Limit In Windows 10

Smartphones have a very good feature related to maximum volume of the device. Android phones give a warning if the user is increasing volume beyond a certain limit. The warning is that if we keep on increasing the volume beyond that limit, it may hurt our ears. This feature is seemingly non-existent in Windows 10. But there are various ways by which we can achieve the same target by setting a maximum volume limit in the Operating System.

We will discuss achieving this with the built-in sound tool as well as using third party apps. Let’s start with the built-in tool.

Adjusting volume using Built-in Sound Tool

Go to Control Panel –> Sound –> Speaker –>General –>Balance.

You can balance the Left and Right speaker according to your desire or requirement. This isn’t a perfect solution but it can solve your problem up to some extent. If your problem will not be solved you can switch to below mentioned software to control Maximum Volume Limit.

After selecting your desired limit, you can lock it. So whenever user crosses that limit, this App won’t let that user to cross the pre-defined limit.

It also gives you option for setting password, so that no one can change the sound limit which you set. This App will provide you best solution hopefully. You’ll try and you’ll love to enjoy it. One thing that seems to be missing in all the above solutions is that we can set a time range in which this setting can be enabled. If this could be achieved using any app or trick, it would become the perfect solution. Do you know of any utility which can do both, set maximum volume limit and set time range in which the volume limit applies?
