Is it possible to change how to increase sound volume in Windows?

My laptop's function keys can adjust the sound higher and lower, but they increase in steps of ~12%, and I wanted it to increase in smaller steps, because some things are quite loud at 10% sound volume, so I have to manually adjust in the icon.

Or are there any Windows specific combinations for sound?

Try that?

I just tried it myself. Ctrl and the up or down cursor keys changes the volume, it works pretty well, it does a volume change of about 3 per button press which is better than 10-12% per press...

I'm jealous

even at 100% with speakers full volume my sounds are super quiet.

loud @ 10% sounds great to me.

^It's loud in the context that if the house is silent, and someone in the next room is studying. The noises become annoying. You can always connect speakers to the laptop and ramp up the noise anyways.

I'll see that later, but I worry if it creates conflicts with other programs.
