  1. Volume bar keeps popping up

    The volume bar keeps appearing in the top left corner on my laptop screen. It's been happening for a while now and it's really annoying, especially when I'm watching a video and it keeps popping up.

    Any suggestions on something I might have accidentally enabled/diasbled??

    Volume bar keeps automatically decreasing

    I have a Dell Inspiron 13-7352 laptop with Windows 10 and I've been pulling my hair out this past week. The volume bar keeps popping up on the upper left corner as soon as it boots up. Anytime I try to increase the volume, it'll automatically decrease back down to 0. I have tried everything and can't find any real solutions.
    I've tried:

    1. uninstalling sound driver(multiple times now)
    2. change playback device settings to do nothing
    3. system restore to an earlier date
    4. uninstall and reinstalled many applications

    I've been disabling the playback device so the volume bar will disappear from the screen, so I can do school work.

    How can I fix this?

    Your concern regarding the missing volume bar when pressing the volume keys can be caused by a sudden change on your device configuration or corrupted/missing driver. To isolate your concern, we'd like to ask the following:

    • Which Windows build version is running on your device? Type
      winver in the search box and press Enter to help you identify.

    • What other troubleshooting steps have you performed to resolve your concern?

    Meanwhile, we suggest that you perform the steps provided on this support article on how to troubleshoot sound/audio

    Volume bar banner


    Thank you for writing to Microsoft Community Forums.

    I understand how annoying it can be when you get the Volume bar banner, while playing music/video on Google Chrome.
    To have a clarity on this issue, we need some information.

    • Was there a major change or an update on your system, prior to which you weren't facing this issue?
    • Do you receive the same popup when you play music/videos on Edge or Internet Explorer?
    • Do you have any extensions enabled in Google Chrome for playing music?
    • Which version of Google Chrome are you using?

    However, we suggest you to try this steps and check if you are able to get rid of the banner.

    1. Press Windows + I key from the keyboard to open
    2. Then click on Systems. Then select
      Notifications & actions from the left pane.
    3. Then under Get notifications from these senders, toggle the switch for
      Audio to disable the Banner and Sound notifications.
    4. Close all the browser and reopen Google Chrome, to play some
    5. Check if you get the Volume bar banner back.

    As an additional information, please refer the
    Change notification settings in Windows 10

    We await your response.
