Wii Remote: How to Change Volume on the Wiimote

   Posted January 16, 2007 by David Kirk in Nintendo Wii

My wii’s wiiremote (wii remote) volume is way too loud. How do I decrease it?

The sound coming out of the tiny wii remote speaker can be painful. Here is how to change the volume. (I bet most people will be decreasing it.)

1. In your game, press the HOME key on your wii remote
2. Click the image of the wii remote in the lower left corner.


3. Change the volume


4. Click Close Wii Remote Settings
