Personal Technology – Bluetooth Volume Problem with Windows Volume Control

The original goal of this blog to write down all the technical stuff which I want to keep as a diary and refer it back when I need help. As I was working with SQL Server when I started this blog, I ended up writing down majorly on the SQL Server topics. Lots of readers shared absolutely the same problems which I face and that eventually lead us to this time where has nearly 5000 articles on SQL Server only. In today’s blog post, I will discuss one of the issues which I face while use technology for my personal use. I will be discussing Bluetooth Volume Problem with Windows Volume Control.

Bluetooth Volume Problem

I use many different Bluetooth devices with my Windows and for every device, I connect to Windows, I had one particular problem with volume control. Every Bluetooth device works as binary with the volume control. In another word, the volume control does not control the volume of the audio device. No matter where I keep my volume between 1 to 100, it plays at one single volume and if I move the control to 0 (zero), it will mute the volume. However, I was able to control my devices volume using the control on the device but not with the Windows Volume Control.

It was very much annoying to me as I was not able to switch between various windows application dealing with volume due to non-cooperation of the Bluetooth device. After carefully searching for many days here is the solution I found and it works pretty much every single time.


The solution is very simple. First, run the command prompt with administrative rights.

Next fun the following command on the command prompt.

HKLM\SYSTEM\ControlSet001\Control\Bluetooth\Audio\AVRCP\CT /v DisableAbsoluteVolume /t REG_DWORD /d 1 /f


HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\ControlSet001\Control\Bluetooth\Audio\AVRCP\CT /v DisableAbsoluteVolume /t REG_DWORD /d 1 /f

That’s it! Done!

Now onwards you will be able to control the volume of your Bluetooth device with the help of Windows Volume Control.
