Sometimes when watching a YouTube video I need more volume. I go into "sound settings" and there's an option to increase the volume to something like 150%. Problem is, when I bring the volume back down below 100%, I can't increase it back above 100% without going back into sound settings and changing it. My question is, is there any way to adjust the volume above 100% without having to go into settings every time?

How about locking the sound settings to your launcher? –  i08in Dec 22 '13 at 7:28
How do I do that? –  John Hill Dec 22 '13 at 13:52
Go to System settings -> Sound and then right-click on the Sound icon on the launcher now and "Lock to launcher". –  i08in Dec 22 '13 at 13:58
