    I can access * Volume Control* using Start>Run>sndvol32.exe

    What is the command for *Capture*, or _must_ I then go to *Options* in *
    Volume Control*?

    What I would like is to create keyboard shortcuts for both if possible.
    (I have *Winkey* installed, if thet helps...)

    Process Explorer
    http://www.sysinternals.com/ntw2k/freeware/procexp.shtml

    If Capture is a separate program or DLL, Process explorer will show what
    it is.

    Thanks for that, I'll go and see what it finds...

    I don't think that the *capture* is a separate feature though, as I've just
    spent 1/2 an hour looking through the System32 file for it...

    If it's not a separate program, you will have to access sndvol32.exe
    first then.

    Let me push my favorite program http://powerpro.webeddie.com/
    I use this all the time for what your trying to do.

    I create a button to appear only when the program I use needs a
    short-cut command. In this case one click would load sndvol32 and select
    capture.

    It's got a high learning curve but worth it; and it's free and clean.

    I' m really not clear on what you are trying to do with volume control.
    Do you want to select the channel from which you want to record (with a
    separate program, volume control doesn't record) and want to open volume
    control to recording properties with a KB shortcut?

    If so, change the "target" in a shortcut to SNDVOL32.exe...
    from: C:\WINDOWS\SNDVOL32.EXE
    to: C:\WINDOWS\SNDVOL32.EXE -R

    You can then assign KB keys to open the shortcut. For the KB combo to
    work, the shortcut must be on the Start>Programs menu; you may be able
    to move it after assigning the KB combo.

    A better solution for KB shortcuts is a small, free program named Hotkey
    Plus from
    http://www.brianapps.net/hotkeyplus/ See my dandies below for more
    info.

    Ok, I *tried* to keep it simpl, but...

    What I really want is a kb shortcut to
    Start>Run>sndvol32.exe>[1]>Options>Properties>Recording>OK

    I can get to [1] with a Desktop shortcut, no problem, but it would be a LOT
    easier for _me_ to use a kb shortcut to go straight there.
    I am partially sighted and have problems *hitting* things with the mouse
    (no, forget *magnifier...)

    That would still only get me to the *Play^ applet (if yousee what iI mean)
    rather than the *Record* though, wouldn't it?

    On mine (WIn98 right now) it would be:
    SNDVOL32.EXE then ALT+P (options) ALT+R (properties) TAB (to go down to
    the selection) arrow key down (from play to record) TAB twice to OK
    ENTER

    Piece of cake for PowerPro :)

    You need to find a program that will do macro commands
    Quick search comes up with http://www.macros.com/capab.htm

    You do realize that there is no point going there via any method unless
    you want to change the selected recording channel from what you set it
    previously, right?

    No, it gets you to Record. That's what the " -R" switch is for.

    Every time I open MSN Messenger to chat to my mate, the microphone dooesn't
    work, and I have to type *WAIT* to him, shut him off and thenrun the Tuning
    Wizatd (to reenable the mic) and then reconnect to him...

    I wanted to be able to hit the Widos key and M (say) to sseect the mic and
    ave all the hasssle.
