    Icon with Slider Appears Now and Then


    I've seen this icon show up when I play games on my Win 10 laptop. It usually shows up for a couple of seconds then goes away. When it appears the first time the frame rate drastically decreases until it shows a second time and everything is fine. I haven't tried doing any interactions with it as it usually happens too fast for me to do much, though this time I was lucky enough to get a screenshot of it. I've been looking for what this icon is with no luck, any leads out there?

    speaker ( or sound ) slider switch disappeared

    Hi Hank,

    Thank you for posting your query on Microsoft Community.


    • Are you able to use Volume slider on the taskbar?

    • Do you get any error message?

    • Are you able to see sound icon on the taskbar?
    I suggest you to hoover your mouse on the right side of the taskbar and click on the sound icon and try to use volume slider and check if it that works.

    Follow the steps below and check.


    • Discover the empty slot on the
      Taskbar
      and Right click.

    • Click on Properties.

    • Under Taskbar tab and Notification area
      click on Custom.

    • Tap on Select which icons appears on the taskbar.

    • Turn on Volume option.
    Hope this helps. If any other issues get back to us. We are glad to help you.

    Thanks

    Font and Icon size

    Hi Vickie,

    It's possible that some settings were accidentally changed, affecting your icons and font size. We'd like to learn more about your concern so that we could provide the proper resolution. We just have a few questions for you:

    • Which build version of Windows 10 is on your computer? To check, click
      Start
      , type winver, and press Enter. For example, 14393.1066.
    • What troubleshooting steps have you done so far?

    As initial recommendation, we suggest following these steps to change the icon size:

    • Right-click on an empty space on your desktop.
    • Select View.
    • Choose Medium icons or Small icons, whichever you prefer more.

    Additionally, you can change the display size of texts and other items by following these steps:

    • Right-click on an empty space on your desktop.
    • Click Display settings.
    • Under Change the size of text, apps, and other items, drag the slider over to 100%.
    • If the slider is already on 100%, click Advanced display settings.
    • Under Resolution, choose the Recommended option from the drop-down choices.

    We'll wait for your response to our questions and the results of the initial troubleshooting.

    Icon with Slider Appears Now and Then

    New AOC U2879VF monitor, opening file explorer results in huge icons

    Hi Alex,

    Since your display has a high resolution, Windows 10 will automatically set the scaling value to an appropriate percentage that's why the icons appear larger. Also, Microsoft recommends keeping your display resolution to the "recommended" value. If you prefer
    your text, apps, and other items to be even bigger or smaller, we suggest that you follow these steps:

    • Click Start menu.
    • Click Settings.
    • Click System.
    • Choose Display and you can manually adjust it by clicking or dragging the slider.

    Let us know how it goes after performing the steps above.
