    so you want to be able to press a key from inside your program that will change the volume?

    1. write some code that will check for the key specified using getchar(),fgetc(), etc.
    2. go to MSDN and look up on multimedia functions. Insert desired code to execute after detection of specified key. This code should basically be an increment to the current volume, which will probably be in hex, so it might take two or three lines, unless the ++ operator will handle-I've never tried but it might work, and then the volumeIncrease function or whatever that passes a handle to the sound device and the new volume.
    I go to encounter for the millionth time the reality of experience and to forge in the smithy of my soul the uncreated conscience of my race.

    Windows XP consists of 32 bit extensions and a graphical shell for a 16 bit patch to an 8 bit operating system originally coded for a 4 bit microprocessor, written by a 2 bit company, that can't stand 1 bit of competition.
