Minimal Volume Control 3.1 by dscnctvd Minimal Volume Control 3.1 by dscnctvd
This is exactly what it looks like; a dark/light gray bar that controls volume through click, drag, or mousewheel.

I tried to make this as absolutely unobtrusive as possible. Editing transparency and color through the .ini should be pretty simple, but I don't really see a need. I've found that it works very well to set 80% transparency with fade-in through rainmeter. Small transparent handle underneath to drag it around.

If anyone can tell me how to get the slider to feel a little less "sticky", please let me know!

This is a mod of Volume Control 3.0 ([link]) by ~Unight and all credit goes to him!

Hi, I am planning to adjust this skin so it also updates the bar in case user changes volume from any other source. Not sure if its doable, but I'm gonna give it a try and keep you guys updated :)

Edit: This can already be done with current skin, just enable Update in [Rainmeter] section!

No prob with it! I am depserately searching for a skin to modify the "windows sound mixer" (y'know, with the indicator for each software -Itunes, internet...-) i even tried to make it myself but.... Any idea?

hey great skin :D , but is there a way to make it change the volume of itunes only, without changing the global volume of windows?? :s

How do I change the size of the meter? On a side note, whenever I change the color of the bar, and I click on it, the bar reverts to the default colors. Is there any way to fix that?

Cool, just what I was looking for. Sometimes the slider doesn't work very well, so I just click on the bar instead of dragging it.

Yeah, I couldn't figure out how to "unstick" it. I almost never even bothered dragging it.
