Volume Control
Your Fujitsu LifeBook notebook has multiple volume controls which interact with each other. 
Controlling the Volume
The volume can be controlled in several different ways:
• Volume can be changed or muted from within the Volume Control in the system tray.
• Volume can be controlled with the F8 and F9 functions keys. Pressing [F8] repeatedly while holding 
[Fn] will decrease the volume of your notebook. Pressing [F9] repeatedly while holding [Fn] will 
increase the volume of your notebook.
• Volume can be muted by pressing the [F3] key while holding down the [Fn] key. To restore audio, 
repeat the [Fn+F3] procedure.
• Volume can be controlled by many volume controls that are set within individual applications.
• Certain external audio devices you might connect to your system may have hardware volume 
controls.
Each source discussed above puts an upper limit on the volume level that must then be followed by the 
other sources. 
We recommend that you experiment with the various volume controls to discover the optimal sound level.
