Question

Volume buttons keyboard don't work with bluetooth speakers

Hi

I recently bought some bluetooth speakers i am using with my laptop now.
Everything is working very well but i cant use the volume buttons of my laptops keyboard to adjust the volume that come from the speakers.

If i use the buttons it shows the volume going down but it is not working with the speakers only wit the build in laptopspeakers.

when i click the speaker button right down of the laptop screen it shows the volume of the speakers (bluetooth audio device) and i can change the volume of the speakers there.

My question: How can i link the volume quickbuttons of my laptop with the bluetooth audiospeakers?

Re: how

That's a great question, but a better question might be "Can I link ...".
Probably, if you ask the customer service of the speaker makers they'll say that you should ask the maker of your laptop. And when you aks the customer service of your laptop maker, they'll say you ask the maker of the speakers.

I just checked on my Dell laptop. All the keyboard applet in Control Panel says is that it is a standard PS/2 keyboard (although it isn't) and it doesn't even mention the volume keys next to the keyboard. But maybe your control panel applets (for sound, keyboard or bluetooth) have more options?

Interesting.
Especially if you take in mind that this article is about asus n76...
My laptop is a asus N75SFHappyHappyHappy.

Re: other type

That article blames the software. There's no reason to suppose that the software on these different laptops is so different that you can expect it to work.

I wasn't clear.

My experiences with bluetooth over the years have me dazed. It could have been so much better but I would be digressing if I wrote about how the players that bickered, fought over licensing and patents over functionality made it less than it could have been.

Bluetooth version problem

Does your Bluetooth version of your bluetooth speaker match with the version of your laptop

no dont think so
my laptop

my bluetooth speakers

they do not match perfectly but everything with the bluetooth is working fine. i can also change the volume of the bluetooth speakers with my laptop. just not with the volume keys of the laptops keyboard because they only change the internal speakers volume... i want them to change the external speakers volume too. (the external speakers are the main and standard speakers according to my laptop.

Since you can change it with Windows

Then maybe there's some hope you can change it with AUTOIT. I'm not offering to write your AUTOIT script for this but you can research (google?) this by using the key phrase "AUTOIT CHANGE SOUND VOLUME."
