Dell XPS Sound indicator issue
This is my daughter's laptop. Ive just ran a cleanup on it, spybot, malware bytes, ccleaner, etc
Before, when she pressed Fn F12 which is the volume control, she got a level indicator in the middle of the screen. It has gone now and I have looked everywhere but cannot get it back. It is a Realtek driver and there doesnt seem to be a setting on the Realtek control screen to sort it, nor on device manager, nor on Sound under Control Panel
What am I missing?

These type of things are usually part of one of the Dell apps.

Ta. It was the Dell Quickset application driver. I wonder what it was that took it out and why?

Re: Dell XPS Sound indicator issue
Some of the dell files register as spyware. Run it on a factory set laptop and you'll see what I mean. Also applies to some Acer software.

It's not overly wrong, some of it is practically malware.
