So I had an MX610 and enjoyed the volume control keys. I just had that replaced by warranty with an MX620, which only has a search key. I would like to bind this key to open the volume control so I can scroll up/down to increase/decrease volume. More specifically, I want it to single click the volume control in the system tray (I don't want it to fully open the volume control app, just the system tray volume control so that when I click elsewhere it will automatically close). I'm running vista.
Right now I just have the search key bound to Mute using SetPoint. I was thinking of binding a keyboard key to open the volume app, and then binding the search button to that key, but I don't know how to bind a keyboard key to that volume app.
I hope that's clear. Any help would be appreciated!

I'm not sure how I managed to overlook sidescrolling, thanks!
I did figure out how to do what I want though:
- Assigned the search key to a keystroke assignment: Alt+z
- Downloaded and installed AutoHotKey
- edited the default script to run sndvol -f when Alt-n is pressed: !z::Run sndvol -f
I hope that helps others who may want the same functionality. Now when I press the search key, the volume bar pops up and I can scroll up/down to adjust volume. When I click anywhere else, it automatically closes.
