per application volume control?
I have some old windows games that play music very loudly, so when I play
these I have to turn down the volume.
When I go back to other vista apps, I have to turn up the volume.

Is there some way to give each app their own volume control?

Only if it's supported by the audio card's drivers. If it's an integrated
audio chipset on the motherboard, then it's probably not. If it's a
separate audiocard, then yes, you can do that... and it works very well.

TRY:
start your application
right click on the speaker icon in lower right
select Open Volume Mixer

It may be that it will show your application in the 'Applications area' if
so you can make its volume lower that the system (Device) level.

I think weather you have this ability is dependent on if your audio card
drivers support the Vista function.
