I'm blown away that there is no easy provision for controlling system volume with a (non Apple) keyboard. Is there a way to make macros for raising, lowering and muting the volume that I am overlooking? PTH Volume System Preference hasn't worked right in a long time, but I was limping along with it until 10.9.5, which it wont launch in at all. I even tried some Applescript I found online with a macro. That worked for a day or two, but is now ineffective -- maybe a Restart is needed, but that seems pretty lame. Any other ideas for controlling/muting Mac volume with a macro? Thanks.
