Almost 10 years later, the Windows operating system received a new modern volume indicator. This milestone comes with Windows 11 Test Build 22533 as part of the Windows Insider Program.
The black bar that appears when the user adjusts the system volume using the keyboard or otherwise originally debuted in Windows 8 in 2012. And now she is finally gone. Microsoft is replacing it with a volume indicator that matches the overall design of Windows 11.
A new modern design has been developed for the indicators for volume, brightness, camera privacy, camera on/off, and airplane mode.
Microsoft Windows Insider CEO Amanda Langowski explained:
These new pop-ups will appear when you press the volume or brightness keys on your laptop and will take light/dark mode into account to provide a more consistent Windows experience.”
