Before we begin with the tutorial let me first give you an overview of whole tutorial. The thing which makes this possible is a small lightweight software namely 3rvx. Ya i know the name is weird but this free available software works just like a dream come true for us. We will first install it on windows computer or laptop and then we will slightly configure it to make it similar to Mac. Not wasting much of your time, now let us begin with the tutorial.


Download the software which we are going to use to get mac like sound hud on windows from here. After downloading install it on your windows computer.

Note – I tried this on my Windows 8 Laptop if you are using older versions of windows than it might not work properly but you can always give a try.


After you install it on your computer, open 3RVX.exe file (If you don’t get the shortcut on desktop then run it by searching “3rvx.exe” in windows search). It will open up the window as shown in below given image.
