I recently booted up my Windows 10 laptop after a long time. I connected my Edifier Bluetooth speakers to my laptop and noticed a strange issue with the volume.
Windows volume control was not working with the Bluetooth speakers. The mute and unmute option was working but not the volume control.
I tried changing the volume with the volume mixer as well but it didn’t work as well. Running troubleshooter, playing with settings, updating sound and bluetooth driver was useless.
After searching a bit more it seemed like a problem happening to many users with different laptops and different Bluetooth speakers. The problem came after a windows update and Microsoft hasn’t pushed any patch yet.
Here I am sharing the fix that is working.
Fix Windows Bluetooth Volume
- Press Win+R
- Write regedit and hit Enter
- Look for entry DisableAbsoluteVolume
- Change the value to 1, if the entry is not there, right click and click New->DWORD and create a new entry with DisableAbsoluteVolume and set the value to 1
Restart you system and your volume control should start working in sync with your Bluetooth speakers.
