How to Boost System Volume in Windows 11 / 10 Beyond 100% Without Using Any Software

Speakers on my laptop are not very loud even I set the volume to 100% in Microsoft Windows and I barely hear the sound from my computer. I found a way to increase the system volume without using any software. Enabling that option as mentioned below, the sound of your laptop or computer will be 200% approx. So, let’s see how to boost speaker volume using Windows settings.

In this guide, you will learn to increase the volume of your system past 100%. After following the steps to increase the sound this will give a boost to the Windows 10 or Windows 11 maximum volume. Like me, If your laptop or desktop also has the same low sound problem then this is the guide for you to boost the system volume.
