The minor inconvenience of navigating to volume settings in your computer can be quite annoying if you need to do it on a repeated basis. Thankfully, there is no need to put up with this problem for any prolonged period since there are several known solutions. We will walk through many of these methods on a step-by-step basis in this article.
If Method 1 doesn't restore the volume onto your taskbar, then changing the text size is the next step to attempt to fix the problem. This method changes your device's display settings and restores them because, in some cases, the missing icon might be caused by a display issue.
If you still find your volume icon missing after the above two methods, then proceed to try logging in and logging out of Windows 10. Some users reported that this simple solution worked for them and it only requires one key step. Just sign out and sign back into Windows 10 and the volume icon should appear again on your display.
Honestly, I have no idea how to describe it. I loved how when I played a video on Firefox, it wouldn't pop up with that annoying video title whenever I changed my volume. Now, when I'm watching a video or playing audio, this happens. And, it doesn't even get it right most of the time! Like for example, it does this instead! That's not even the page I'm on!
Has this ever happened to you? When your phone volume is accidentally increased or decreased by your shirt sleeve, or when you put your phone in your pocket? If you have ever accidentally turned up the volume on your phone, you know how annoying it can be.
There are a few possible explanations for why your volume screen won't go away. One possibility is that you have an app that is interfering with the system UI. Another possibility is that you have a hardware issue.
I am wondering if there is any way to disable the beep whenever I use a touch screen monitor? I have a Elo Touch Screen monitor and I can do it on the physical PC but I have 100 PC I need to do it to so I'm wondering how to do it with either a startup/logon script or through GP somehow. I have tried disabling the Windows Audio Service and setting the "HKCU/Control Panel/Beep" registry setting to off and it still beeps. It's not a windows beep but more of a system beep.
Windows 10 comes with a nice feature which allows you to have a random image shown on the Lock screen every time you see it. It downloads beautiful images from the Internet and shows them on your lock screen. So, every time you boot or lock Windows 10, you will see a new lovely image. To get the currently displayed Lock Screen image file on your disk drive, click the button under the appropriate picture. To get all Lock Screen images stored on your PC, click the button "Get all images stored on this PC".
When enabled, every time you sign in, you will see an information screen with the date and time of the last successful logon. The same information will be displayed even if the previous logon was unsuccessful.
You can prevent App Switcher (that tiny thumbnail in the top left corner of the screen) from accidentally displaying when the mouse pointer goes to the screen corners. Set the App Switcher hover timeout for the classic Desktop, the Start screen and Modern apps. File Explorer needs to be restarted for changes to take effect.
You can prevent the Charms bar from accidentally displaying when the mouse pointer goes to the screen corners. Set the Charms bar hover timeout for the classic Desktop, the Start screen and Modern apps. File Explorer needs to be restarted for changes to take effect.
Windows 10 has a good way in informing you about the latest happenings in the apps and programs or even security and other system settings on your computer but there are times that these notifications displayed by the feature called Action Center becomes very annoying.
When Windows Defender finds a malicious stuff in your computer, it will also show a notification box at the bottom-right portion of your computer screen telling you that it has found something that can potentially affect your computer. Action Center does this for almost all apps and programs in your computer including the Mail app and others and this causes some annoyances especially if your machine is connected to a large speaker and you are doing a presentation or just playing a music loudly. What makes it annoying is the sound that plays whenever notifications appear which is louder than the music that you are playing in most cases. This can cause unnecessary distraction in your part and on the part of the listeners in case you are having a presentation.
Aside from the sounds that play for notifications, there are also small banners that suddenly displays on the bottom-right portion of your computer screen and this can be annoying especially if you are presenting something on the big screen. If you want to turn this feature off, all you need to do is access the advanced notification settings of the app or program as we have already shown in the previous trick where we have shown how to turn off notification sounds.
At the Build Conference in April 2014, Microsoft's Terry Myerson unveiled an updated version of Windows 8.1 (build 9697) that added the ability to run Windows Store apps inside desktop windows and a more traditional Start menu in place of the Start screen seen in Windows 8. The new Start menu takes after Windows 7's design by using only a portion of the screen and including a Windows 7-style application listing in the first column. The second column displays Windows 8-style app tiles. Myerson said that these changes would occur in a future update, but did not elaborate. Microsoft also unveiled the concept of a "universal Windows app", allowing Windows Store apps created for Windows 8.1 to be ported to Windows Phone 8.1 and Xbox One while sharing a common codebase, with an interface designed for different device form factors, and allowing user data and licenses for an app to be shared between multiple platforms. Windows Phone 8.1 would share nearly 90% of the common Windows Runtime APIs with Windows 8.1 on PCs.
A new iteration of the Start menu is used on the Windows 10 desktop, with a list of places and other options on the left side, and tiles representing applications on the right. The menu can be resized, and expanded into a full-screen display, which is the default option in Tablet mode. A new virtual desktop system was added by a feature known as Task View, which displays all open windows and allows users to switch between them, or switch between multiple workspaces. Universal apps, which previously could be used only in full screen mode, can now be used in self-contained windows similarly to other programs. Program windows can now be snapped to quadrants of the screen by dragging them to the corner. When a window is snapped to one side of the screen, Task View appears and the user is prompted to choose a second window to fill the unused side of the screen (called "Snap Assist"). The Windows system icons were also changed. 2b1af7f3a8
