Windows 11 offers a lot of personalization features that allow you to customize the user experience just the way you like it. You can change the theme, wallpapers, colors, icons, and even volume levels for individual applications. The last one among them is particularly handy if you find some apps to be louder while others are barely audible.

You can adjust the volume of each active application to make it more or less audible, depending on your needs. For instance, you can keep your browser at a lower volume, while increasing the volume of your music player.

Here is how you can change the volume of individual apps in Windows 11.

  1. Click on the speaker icon on the bottom right on the taskbar or use the shortcut Win + A to open Volume Mixer in Quick Settings.
  1. You will see the master volume slider below the brightness slider. Click on the sound output icon on the right of the slider.
  1. Scroll down to the Volume Mixer section and you will see the volume sliders for all the apps. To increase or decrease the volume of an app, simply move the slider right or left as needed.
Note: Apps will appear in the Volume Mixer only when they are active. If you want to adjust the volume of an app but cannot see it there, first launch the app so that it is visible there.
  1. Another way is to right-click on the speaker icon on the taskbar and click on the 'Open Volume Mixer' option.
  1. This will again open the Volume Mixer page which shows the volume levels for all applications. You can adjust the volume in the same manner as explained above.

By following the steps explained above, you can easily increase or decrease the volume of specific apps on Windows 11. However, keep in mind that if you change the volume of an app, close it, and then relaunch it, the volume will be reset to the default level. So, volume adjustments only remain in place until the app is open.

If you want greater control over the volume levels of different apps, you may be able to find powerful third-party apps designed for that purpose, though, for most users, the inbuilt Windows option should be more than enough.
