  1. Hey guys,


    I just tackled this issue on Windows 8.1, and by far the most elegant solution I found was using AutoHotkey.


    Check out this post on Superuser.com



    Here is the script

    #PgUp::Send {Volume_Up 3}
    #PgDn::Send {Volume_Down 3}


    so doing Win+PgUp or Win+PgDown changes the master volume.

    1. If you don't have it installed already, http://www.autohotkey.com/
    2. Once installed, right click your Desktop, and choose new AutoHotKey file
    3. Make sure to title the file ending with .ahk (for example, I used "controls.ahk")
    4. Paste the code in from above
    5. Save it, and double click the script in windows explorer

    To run it at startup

    1. Use the AHK provided "Convert to exe" utility (or you can right click the file and select "compile script")
    2. Create the .exe in "C:\Users\%USERNAME%\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\Startup"


  2. Windows 8 changed the functionality of the windows key a lot, so I think you should reconsider your stance of " I never imagined on anyone wanting to hit modifier keys by themselves." 


    I found this thread, and control+escape will work just fine, but I was sitting there frustrated for a few minutes before looking it up. You would be doing other people a favor to make considerations for the start screen.

  3. Thanks, this worked for me. I'm really glad tbs made that driver, otherwise this would have been a big headache. With the release of Windows 8 only a couple weeks away, I'd hope that you get the installer updated very soon.
