Macro to toggle Dolby Audio?

neomaxneomax Member Posts: 5 New User
Hello,
As the title says I'm looking for a way to make a macro in Predator Sense that turns Dolby Audio ON/OFF without having to alt+tab, go to the sound settings, find the Dolby tab and click ON. I'm sure a lot of people have already found this rather annoying "feature" - when you start a game with Dolby turned ON, it turns OFF. So a way to toggle it from the macro pad on the left with a single button would be a very useful and long desired option to have.

    Seems like you're not the only annoyed one. https://community.acer.com/en/discussion/comment/552752/#Comment_552752  I wouldn't hold my breath though for this "convenience" item to happen any time soon.  =) Jack E/NJ

    You *could* set a macro to enable it via registry? 

    Perhaps create a batch file to activate and deactivate then link the macro to the batches? 

    Just a thought.

    I had a same problem with dolby software turning off as it related to the microphone activating and the dolby software doesn't work correctly with it as such it turns itself off I found a solution installing EqualizerAPO mentioned in this post https://community.acer.com/en/discussion/comment/547312 follow the installation method and setup and the issue with Dolby software turning itself off should stop as it worked for me on Predator 17 G9-791  Win 10 home build 1709
