    Volume indicator upper left of screen

    Howdy, new here and my first post. I just upgraded from Windows 7 64-bit to Windows 10 Home. Install went smooth but I am noticing something undesired. Whenever I adjust my volume, a vertical bar appears in the upper left of my screen indicating the volume level. It looks like this:

    The box is immovable, but only lasts for 5 seconds (I adjusted the length of display to the minimum time allowed). My personal preference is to either move the bar or disable it; I find the location rather bothersome. However, I cannot seem to find any method to relocated the bar or disable it. Anyone have any experience with this, or suggestions?

    Hello Quigster Welcome to the Ten Forums!

    The solution I found here was quite simple having a volume control right on the keyboard that adjusts the sound level rather then the need to open up either the Creative Audio Console Launcher or the silder control hidden from view in the System notification area.

    How's this one for comparsion to your's? The problem is it simply won't stay onscreen long enough to even try moving it around while never a problem to begin with when opting to use the volume knob on the keyboard used here. Azio Levetron L70 LED Backlit Gaming Keyboard (KB501)

    I wouldn't know of any other way to prevent that without a direct intervention in the System Registry itself which wouldn't be advised! The lengthy tabs springing out from the lower right side of the screen can actually be more of annoyance you simply have to live with in 10 then something that flashes for only a few seconds at the most.

    The only other alternative besides having a keyboard like that is simply pinning a shortcut to either the onboard sound's or sound card's app where that has a sound mixer with volume control. You would need to open that and then close it yourself rather then simply seeing the slider control vanish in seconds on it's own. I did that here with the Creative Entertainment Audio Console Launcher seeing it pinned on the main taskbar
