Here you can control the volume for you running applications which are currently calling for Windows Audio support. For instance if you are listening to an YouTube video on in your Internet Explorer, you might want to soften the system sounds down a bit.

You can also control the overall level of sound on your PC. Move the sliders up or down to raise or lower the volume of your speakers, Windows sounds, or other sound devices or programs listed in the Volume Mixer. To mute the volume, click the Mute button.
