    Windows Sound Icon Problem


    After I boot my pc for the first time, I always have to restart "Windows Explorer" in task manager in order to use the sound icon on the taskbar. I have audio however I can't interact with the sound icon in any way. I was wondering if anyone has a more permanent solution to this problem. I'm sure a clean install would fix this however that would be my last resort. Not sure if all of the following were necessary however this is what I have done so far and still no fix. Made sure Windows is up to date. Ran sfc and DISM commands, all came back good. Made sure all drivers are up to date.

    If this is not the right place to post this please let me know. Thank you!

  2. Sound problems

    Hi Matty,

    Thank you for using Windows 10.

    I understand your concern and would suggest you to check with any other headphones to make sure there is no issues with headphones.

    I would also suggest you to update the Sound drivers and check if that helps. Here is the steps:

    • Press “Windows + X” and select Device manger.
    • Locate the sound driver and expand the driver icon.
    • Right click on the driver icon and click on Update.
    Keep us informed about the status of the issue and we'll be happy to assist you further.
