Some apps will only appear in the app list when they make a sound, otherwise, they will not appear in the list. For example, if the tabs or webpages you open on Chrome do not produce any audio, the Chrome browser may not appear in the list. To be displayed in the app list of the volume mixer, the web browser needs to open at least one webpage that actively generates sound, such as YouTube.

After changing the volume of an app, if you close the app and reopen it, the volume will be reset to the default value, usually 100%.
