Windows 7 how to remove volume in the middle of the screen

Hello,
is it possible to disable the volume that pops in the middle of the screen whenever i mute my pc, because when i'm playing a game with "fullscreen" and i mute, it exits(doesnt close the game just alt tabs) the game to the desktop thingy.

  1. Uninstall the utility to do that, it usually comes with laptops, name for it will vary.
  2. hmm so any ideas how i could know what that utility is called
  3. You may also be able to just turn off the on-screen display for volume changes in the software the hang-the-9 is referring to. What model/brand of computer are you using? The software is going to be different depending on what type of machine you are using.

    Please don't triple post either, it makes it difficult to follow threads and help you.
  4. Can you give us a snapshot/screenshot of what your talking about?

    And what do you mean when you "Game with fullscreen and I mute, it exits". If your playing a game and you mute it via the windows taskbar, you are obviously alt tabbing.

    Or do you mean muting via some Function button (Fn+ +-) something like that?

    You neeed to be more specific.

    hmm what i mean is that when i have something on fullscreen and i push the mute button on my keyboard it exits the full-screen just to show that volume in the middle of the screen, what i want is to disable it so that when i hit mute i dont exit full-screen
  7. As someone else stated - please list your complete system specs/ Name of your laptop/model as well.
  8. that feature on my pc came with my logitech mouse & keyboard. since you are using a keyboard function look for a utility from that brand. The easiest way is just type the brand of your keyboard in the Win 7 start menu search bar.
  9. I just wanna disable the on-screen volume for windows 7 >.<
    HP Pavilion Elite,model: HPE-430me
    The main system specs are:
    Intel Core i7 870 @ 2.93GHz
    2x 4GB DDR3 RAM
    Nvidia GeForce GT 230 with 1.5GB memory
    2TB SATA 3 (7,200rpm) HDD
    DVD burner with LightScribe
    15-in-1 memory card reader

  10. the only windows 7 volume related feature is the little task bar icon in the (typically) bottom right corner.

    You keep saying the middle of the screen. If the notification is in the middle of the screen that means it was added by a 3rd party application.

    Either look for a HP related program, or a program related to your keyboard (since that has the mute button on it).
  11. As others have stated, this is not a Windows 7 feature. It's a third-party program.

    Many laptops come with a similar on-screen display feature among the bundled / pre-installed software.

    I did a quick google search for your computer and found this: https://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?docname=c00813419&lc=en&cc=emea_middle_east&dlc=en&product=4296867

    That document will walk you through how to uninstall unwanted programs. The one you're describing is listed as 'OSD' in the bottom section.
  12. hmm well i got a screenshot of what i mean but could u tell me how can i post it here ?
  13. hmm i finally found a pic on google that shows the volume meter that pops Right in the middle of my screen

    i would like to disable that if its possible
  14. I looked up the driver downloads for that PC, it's a desktop not a laptop. And could not find a download for it that looks like the one to turn this on/off, usually it's a set of computer utilities that enable onscreen display, but none of the downloads I see for this model sound like the right thing.

    You may want to check with HP support http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/siteHome?lc=en&cc=us&dlc=en&os=4062&sw_lang=&product=top
  15. Again, it is not a Windows 7 feature. It is a add-on program.

    Unless someone happens to have that same program, no one is going to be able to give you step-by-step instructions. If you use your eyes and look through the control panel and start menu on your PC, you should either find controls for your keybard (like mine is a logitech), or maybe something labeled OSD, or possibly some other controls. Poke around until you find it.
  16. hmm i believe that it is an HP program. my friend has an HP laptop and when he mutes his laptop with a button on his keyboard, he gets the volume in the middle of the screen but, when he is running something on fullscreen (for Example: world of warcraft or windows media player) and he mutes his laptop with the mute button. his laptop wont exit fullscreen just to show that thing poping in the middle of his screen. Now how come whenever i mute with the keyboard i get alt tabbed ?
