How To Set Shortcut Key In NirCmd

  • 0

Trying to use toggle mute from nircmd; can’t set shortcut key. It states, “None”, and I can’t change the word “None”.

  1. Well, I’d not used Nircmd but have now downloaded it. On my Win 8.1 it didn’t want to copy the zipped files into the Windows folder so I did it manually.

    I ran the command (line 11 – as per my previous link). An icon called “Switch Volume” arrived on the desktop and sure enough I could toggle the sound on and off just fine.

    Nothing more I can suggest except when you get to Command Prompt Copy/Paste the line in:
    nircmd.exe cmdshortcut “~$folder.desktop$” “Switch Volume” mutesysvolume 2

    That will make darned certain it is 100% correct. Any minor error, such as a space missing, could prevent it working.

    Always pop back and let us know the outcome – thanks
