    Sound Blaster X-Fi Surround 5.1 Pro - default Win sound indicator?


    Hi,
    I just bought this sound card and installed drivers for Windows 10. (and a crapton of bloatware with UI of Win XP media player...)
    Everything works well except one thing: when I change the sound (or mute) I don't see Windows 10 volume bar. I mean these:

    The sound itself changes, but there is no indicator. Is there a way to fix that?

    In desktop computers changing the volume is only indicated at notification area (clock) by the number of "waves" there are next to the speaker icon. The volume bar is only visible when you change the volume from dedicated keys or key combinations (usually in a notebook). So when in a notebook you press the key combinations for audio level, you see the volume bar on screen, but in PC there is rarely such combination on the keyboard. Changing the volume from the speaker icon doesn't show the volume bars.
