    Disable the Volume Icon In Tray Menu Win10 (NOT WITH GPO!)


    Hi, guys!Can someone tell how to programmatically disable the system sound icon (or other system icons) in Windows 10 from the tray menu? But not through GPO policy. Because then it is not possible to enable it through the parameters, only also with registry tweak.

    Basically you need to create a new Registry DWORD: HideSCAVolume at HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Explorer with value of 1 or 0 restarting Explorer afterwards.

    If someone could write a batch file to create such a switch, would be great and programmatic.

    If you open regedit, make that edit, then export that key to a reg file. You should have a file that you run to make that edit on a PC automatically.
