Some individual desktop apps, such as Music, have their ownvolume controls. However, the Windows system volume is amaster control. For example, if you set the system volume to50 percent, app volume controls can’t make the volume anylouder than that. Setting an app volume to 80 percent wouldmean that it’s playing at 80 percent of the Windows systemvolume setting. It’s quite common to want to adjust the systemvolume or mute sound entirely, which you can do using theVolume slider.

Click and drag theSystem Sounds slider up or down to adjust it.
