    We will now unlock our phone.
    We can do this by pressing down on the home screen, holding down, and then swiping upwards. We will know when to swipe upwards when two, white padlocks appear on the screen.

    Once the phone has been unlocked, we will see the Home screen with five various icons at the bottom.
    We now need to open the Settings menu, to do that we need to swipe the Notification panel down.

  5. 5
    To open the Notifications panel, we will press at the top of the screen and swipe downwards.
    As we can see this has loaded up our notification panel. What we need to find now is the Settings icon, located at the top right-hand corner of the screen. We can see there is a white cog icon. This icon is our Settings icon.

    Press down on the Settings icon once.
    This will open up our Settings menu. As we can see, the word "Settings" will be present in the top, left-hand corner.

    Now we will scroll down until we get to the "PHONE" section.
    It will say "PHONE" at the top, inside of a gray bar. This is our Phone section. We want to locate the option labeled "Sound & notifications". Next to these words we can see the Sounds & notifications icon. This icon features a speaker emitting sound waves.

  8. 8
    Press down on the option labeled "Sound & notifications".
    This is going to bring up our Sound & notifications settings. We want the second option in the "GENERAL" section, labeled "Volumes". Underneath of this option will be the words "Set audio volumes".

  9. 9
    Press down on the option labeled "Volumes", this is going to show us our different volumes.
    Here we will have three different volumes. We have volume number one, this is labeled "Ringtone & notifications" which controls these volumes. Second we have "Music & videos". Lastly, we have "Alarms". This is very helpful because it allows us to set different volumes. Perhaps we want to listen to music loud but we want our ringtone to be quiet, or for example we need our alarms to be very loud so that we can hear them. We can press down on these green lines, indicating how full the bar is, to change them to what percentage of the volume we want selected. Right now, we can see our "Ringtone & notifications" volume is very low.

    Simply press down anywhere on the bar, the gray area or the green area, this will change the volume and give us an example of how loud it will be.
    If we press down somewhere towards the left on this bar the volume will be quite low. To the left for a quieter tone, to the right if we want the volume to be louder.

  11. 11
    We can see that we can alter and edit all of these just by pressing down anywhere on the bar.
    This will select our choice of volume. However, there is another way we can edit these volumes that will be a lot quicker. If we want to go through the Settings we can do so, but it will take up more of our time.

  12. 12
    If we want to edit these options quickly, we can start by pressing down on one of the Volume button, located on the right side of the device.
    The top button will turn the volume up, and the bottom button will turn the volume down. Pressing down on one of these buttons will cause a bar to appear, however, it will also disappear very quickly. First let's get out of the "Volumes" section, we can do this by either pressing "Done" or "Cancel" located at the bottom of the pop-up. If we do not exit this section first, the pop-bar will not appear.

    We will now press down on one of the volume buttons, which will cause a pop-up featuring the word "RINGTONE" at the top to appear.
    Then we can go to press the white cog icon, this will bring us to the same menu we were looking at before. This will be slightly different, however, with no Done or Cancel buttons added. It will also disappear after a short period of time. We will demonstrate again, let's open up the pop-up a second time by pressing down on one the Volume buttons.

    Once the volume bar has appeared, press down on the white cog icon.
    This icon is featured in the right, top corner of the pop-up and will open the Ringtones & notifications panel for us.

  15. 15
    Here we will have the same options featured in the Ringtones & notification panel, with the label "Volumes" at the top.
    Just as we have done previously, we can tap anywhere on the green and gray bars to change the volume settings. We can do this as we like. Be warned though, it will disappear quite quickly. However, it at least allows us to go to this menu a lot quicker than going through the Settings. If we would rather press down on the option labeled Volumes we may do so, then it will not disappear until we press Done or Cancel after making our choices.

    Therefore, we can see that there are two ways to set audio volumes on an HTC One M8.
    We can either go the longer way, which involves going through the Settings menu to find the Sound & notifications menu, and then search through to find the Volumes option. Alternatively, we can press down on the Volume button and then tapping on the white cog, but be warned it will disappear quite quickly.
