In order to control my volume on my Shadow PC i usually turn up my volume and set my Shadow PC to 20%, so i can turn it up if the sounds are quite. Some game sounds can be low. But now my local PC sounds are 5x higher. I have all my communcation programs on my local pc. When i get a email or discord message the sound is really loud and when i get a skype call with headphones on it earbleeding loud.
Some years ago Shadow PC sounds was set to 100% and volume control was disabled, so the volume would be the same, but for some reason i can’t control my local PC within Shadow anymore. All the other cloud services dont have this issue, but for some reason Shadow PC changed this setup.
Are there any tools for volume control i can use in order to control my local PC volume instead?
Or somehow disable that it will capture my volume control buttons in Window.
I am using Windows 10.

Sorry i forgot to say i am using my keyboard volume control to adjust the volume and when using it, it adjusts the volume of the Shadow PC, but i rather have my Shadow PC volume at 100% and control my local PCs volume.
Ah okay, that makes a lot more sense now
I don’t use keyboard media controls, but I had such a keyboard in the closet and tried it out. Sure enough, the media controls get sent to the Shadow VM vs. staying local. I imagine they did that for people who like to run media apps on their Shadow and use those controls for them. Still, I’m with you on this...I’d rather have the controls change my local vs. the Shadow.
To make everyone happy, there should be a toggle in the Shadow client to set the preference. I think this is falling into the realm of a “feature request” under https://forum.shadow.tech/feature-requests-57 … there may be such a request already there, but I didn’t look.
Edit...it looks like this one is along the same lines:
