Volume macros for Razer Blackwidow?


Razer Blackwidow 2013 doesn’t have multimedia buttons for increasing and decreasing the sound volume.

However, you can set the “numpad -” and “numpad +” to act as volume controllers.

Start by downloading and installing this software: “autoHotkey” from autohotkey.com. It is free.

Open autoHotkey, click on “File” and then on “Edit script”.

Add these codes:

+F5:: Send {vkB3sc122}
+F2:: Send {Volume_Up 1}
+F4:: Send {Volume_Down 1}
+F8:: Send {Media_Next}
+F7:: Send {Media_Prev}

Save the page. Right click on the autoHotkey icon from systray and click on “Reload this script”.

Start Razer Synapse 2.0, go to the Razer Blackwidow tab.

Select the “numpad -” button and assign “keyboard function”. Now is the tricky part. To be able to assign Shift+F4 there, you need to spam “Shift+F4” (press together) a few times until the key combo will appear inside there.

Repeat the same process for “Shift+F2” for the “numpad +” button.

Test your new controllers. You can press the buttons just once so the volume will go up/down for an unit or press them continuously to increase/decrease the volume a lot.

Last thing, autoHotkey doesn’t auto-start with Windows. You need to add its executable at auto-start.
