    It looks like this

    If so you need to re-install Segoe UI font / Segoe MDL2 Assets font. Segoe MDL2 Assets replaces Segoe UI font in Windows 10. Guidelines for Segoe MDL2 icons - Windows app development

    You could try downloading this font (in the zip below), unzip and double click to install. The Segoe UI font (which may still be used by some older programs) is on the first link above if you find you need that as well.

    I ran the Segoe MDL2 font installer, same problem. However, it seems to work in the icon dock but not in the mute or on the lockscreen

    Did you try the Segoe UI Symbol font from the eightforums link as well? Could be some apps are still using the old Windows 8 font.
