    Desktop Speaker Icon Not Working


    I just noticed another issue after the latest Windows creator update. The speaker icon on my taskbar no longer functions. It is there and I have sound. when I hover over it the percent of speakers is displayed but I can no longer change the level from there. My keyboard has a volume control so I can change the sound from there.

    Before the update when I clicked that icon it would give me a slide bar that would change the level. Also if you right clicked it there were other options that would come up. Now if you right click it you get nothing.

    Try updating your sound drivers. Once that's done restart the system and see what happens.

    I tried to update the sound driver but it says I have the latest one. The sound works just the icon doesn't.
