How to programmatically set the system volume?

How can I change the Windows System Sound Volume using a C# Application?

Answer

Here is the code:

using System;
using System.Windows.Forms;
using System.Runtime.InteropServices;

namespace Test
{
    public class Test
    {
        private const int APPCOMMAND_VOLUME_MUTE = 0x80000;
        private const int APPCOMMAND_VOLUME_UP = 0xA0000;
        private const int APPCOMMAND_VOLUME_DOWN = 0x90000;
        private const int WM_APPCOMMAND = 0x319;

        [DllImport("user32.dll")]
        public static extern IntPtr SendMessageW(IntPtr hWnd, int Msg,
            IntPtr wParam, IntPtr lParam);

        private void Mute()
        {
            SendMessageW(this.Handle, WM_APPCOMMAND, this.Handle,
                (IntPtr)APPCOMMAND_VOLUME_MUTE);
        }

        private void VolDown()
        {
            SendMessageW(this.Handle, WM_APPCOMMAND, this.Handle,
                (IntPtr)APPCOMMAND_VOLUME_DOWN);
        }

        private void VolUp()
        {
            SendMessageW(this.Handle, WM_APPCOMMAND, this.Handle,
                (IntPtr)APPCOMMAND_VOLUME_UP);
        }
    }
}

When using WPF you need to use new WindowInteropHelper(this).Handle instead of this.Handle (thanks Alex Beals)
