    Does anyone know what this icon means? [Different Notification icon]


    Today when i opened my laptop, the ''Notifications'' icon was little different.
    Does anyone know what that means and how i can bring it back to normal?

    EDIT: Problem solved. It was the ''Quiet hour'' icon little bug thingy, and fixed it by checking and unchecking it only.
    Thanks for all the replies.

    I occasionally get the Quiet Hours symbol on the notification button after a restart, but it only stays there for a couple of seconds if that

    if its stuck with the little '-' on it try toggling Quiet Hours On then Off

    I think he's referring to the o with the dash in it, which is not always there:

    I've seen it, too. No clue what it means, though.

    EDIT
    Whoops, little late to this one! Disregard..
