Allow built in audio increase audio button to increase above 100

Is it possible to increase sound above 100 using the audio buttons in my laptop. i find it very annoying that i have to go to pulseaudio and then increase it above 100 .
I remember that ubuntu had this functionality to increase above 100

Increasing output above 100% are putting you in risk of damaging your internal speakers or your ears if using headphones.

It is often possible to use a toggle in settings to allow the output to pass 100%.

Please search the forum - because this has been discussed on numerous occations - also in the archived forum

but i feel like the sound is very low on linux compared to windows most of the time it just isnt enough

Well - I remember one topic years ago where a noob blew the speakers on a friends laptop and then rained hell in the forum that it was even possible to raise the volume above 100%.
