Something minor that I've noticed.

If you have a keyboard with Play/Pause/Stop buttons and use them during an audio or (YouTube) video play in the background, usually info pops pup in the top left corner showing what is played/paused/stopped with an picture preview of the video/audio. However, this is gone ever since I clean installed Windows 11.

The weird part is that the volume bar (although Windows 10 themed) does appear when pressing the keyboard volume buttons.

Anyone else having this?

A couple of Builds ago..., now the Volume is centered in the bottom and the OSD is in the System Tray...

Is this only for the Insider Builds? I take it you're talking about these appearing when pressing the mentioned buttons on your keyboard?

For me, yes..., it changes from Build to Build!

Actually no! Only the volume shows when keyboard controls are used..., the new OSD, you gotta dig it out of the system tray manually! Which is useless and stupid..., and, apparently, only if your system tray is working!!! :p

Ah, that probably explains why the OSD is not showing up in my case. They have removed it in the Windows 11 stable build and have not implementend it in the systray yet.

Also, oh Microsoft..:rolleyes:
No idea why it's hidden it like that and not make it appear automatically when using the keyboard controls

Btw, what does OSD stand for?

It was way more useful when it was like this:

All my audio controls are on my mouse...
... now you gotta dig it out of the Sys Tray manually just to interact with it! What's the point of having it then!?!?!? 🤷‍♂️

Never mind, I just noticed I do have the OSD in the systray menu. For some reason though I still have the Windows 10 themed volume bar
