In the next major update of its operating system, Microsoft will replace it with a modern UWP application. The latest Windows 10 19H1 update will bring some minor but noticeable changes, including the ability to detach groups of tiles in the Start menu. In addition, Microsoft, apparently, plans to get rid of the old volume mixer, which has always been an integral part of Windows.

In Windows 10 19H1 Build 18272, when choosing the option “Open volume mixer” in the sound menu, a window with the modern parameters of sound devices now appears. Prior to this, the old Volume Mixer application was opened.

It is noteworthy that Microsoft has changed only the shortcuts, the outdated mixer is still available through the control panel or by searching for the file name “SndVol.exe”.

By the way, the modern loudness mixer was before. You can find it by the path: Options> System> Sound> Advanced sound settings.
