Sounds as though you may have an issue with your sound card drivers. You may want to check with the company that makes your sound card and/or PC and either reinstall or update your driver's.
Hello Lee and team, I am having trouble with my Windows 10 taskbar volume control icon. The problem is that sometimes it completely stops working. I researched the problem online, as I always do, and found a workaround. I can temporarily fix the problem by right-clicking on the up-arrow on the right-side of my taskbar, and selecting “Task Manager,” then in the “Processes” window finding “Windows Explorer” and then restarting the Explorer process. I don’t know why, but this will fix the problem until the next time I reboot my computer. Does anyone have a suggestion on a permanent fix for this problem and know why this is happening? Thank you.
