    After upgrading my MediaPortal in the living room from Windows 7 to 10 I noticed a new volume OSD in the top left corner of the screen.

    As in MediaPortal every skin has it's own volume indicator I implemented a tool to turn the system volume OSD off.

    I recently updated to windows 10. And I had the same annoyance.

    After I installed this program I can manually hide the volume OSD. But after a restart of my pc the volume indicator is back again. Your program is loaded though. Any way you can fix this?

    Thank you!

    We should to include this in MP core. Hide OS volume OSD if the user select GUI volume OSD. Can you share your source? ;)

    From @Marcus Venturi blog article it's probably quite easy to implement.
    Use Microsoft Spy++ to workout the name of that Window.
    Once you worked this out a combination of FindWindow and ShowWindow should do the trick.

    There is no OS OSD on my virtual dev machine. I do not know why. It is W 8.1, as my htpc.

    I can start coding if I get the window name.

    Thank you for checking again. Looks like there are differences between the systems. I will alter my code to search for both. Maybe you could then test if it works on your system. Nevertheless I will post my (very simple) code here at the weekend when I have finished my pre-Christmas tasks. ;)
