Volume Limiter is a small application that allows you to set a maximum volume limit on your windows PC. This is designed to protect children from turning the volume up to a level that would damage their hearing.

The application can be password protected to prevent children from changing your defined limit. The application runs in the background and minimizes to the system tray. Volume settings, the lock or unlocked status, and password information are stored in the windows registry. If the application is set to start up upon login (by placing it in the startup group) it will load the previous settings.

This application is compatible with Windows Vista, 7 and 8 and will run on 32 bit or 64 bit systems.

    I just registered into this page so I could thank you for this program. The volume knob of my laptop was malfunctioning, and volume was constantly going up or down by itself. I found other programs in which you could set an upper limit for the volume, but that wouldn't solve my case, so I kept looking for something which could help me until I found this. Thanks a lot! (Design it's a bit poor, I particularly dislike the icon when the program is minimized to the system tray, but what matters is that the program does its purpose, so that's why I'm rating it 5/5)

    I was looking for something like this!! previously I found only paid programs. This one works good, but it has some bugs that prevent it from be deployed on my machines: 1- it eats a lof cpu cycles, at least 30% on Dual Core CPU @ 2.7GHz 2- when the program is displaying a dialog (ex. asking for password), volume can be changed freely, so my clients could reproduce this and bypass limiter. Program tested on: Windows 8.1 / x86 / Spanish

    This is almost what I was looking for. This is a brilliant little program but it locks the volume completely and I was hoping to set a maximum level while still allowing it to be reduced by the user. This is far better than having nothing though, so thank you!

    I'm so happy you made this program! I've been looking for something like this for awhile with no luck. My brother is autistic and likes to crank up the volume to full constantly, So this really is a lifesaver
