I didn’t have too much time the last years. The were some issues with HideVolumeOSD I new and now the GitHub user https://github.com/TheCakeIsNaOH has contributed a pull request that fixes some of them.
There was the annoying “Severe error: OSD Window not found!” message that shouldn’t appear any more. The other one was that the application sometimes stopped working at all.
I have built a new version 1.3 you can download…
All credits for this version go to https://github.com/TheCakeIsNaOH
When executing the setup you will get a Windows SmartScreen warning. This is caused by the fact that I have no commercial certificate to sign the application/setup, because it’s for free. To bypass this, just click on “More Info” at the SmartScreen warning and then on “Run anyway” to install.
Everyhing else about this application is described here
A new version is available here

Thanks man I love you
Thanks a lot Marcus. It waorked excellent 🙂
The software must have been scripted by Marcus Venturi.
i also love you 🙂
Thanks dude really appreciate it.
This.Is.Bliss!! Thank you so much :D!
You are Gods! Thanks so much!!
Wow! What a relief! That stupid volume OSD was driving me crazy!
Thanks a lot! Great work!
I can’t believe you have under 1,000,000 downloads.
Everybody should get this!
I’ve been stuck with this problem for months. Thanks for your good work.
I Love you Man! Thanks a lot! This fu$#$#$ overlay was ruining my life! I’m searching for month for a solution! THANK YOU!
Thank you so much! You are a legend for providing this for free.
This is perfect! That stupid little thing always covered over some controls when I was working in an application, and now it’s gone! FREEDOM!!!!!!
Thanks dude this is epic.
Wow man that is the thing I am looking for like months and it runs perfectly well. This annaying thing irritates me so much when I am working or playing on fullscreen. I didn’t mind so much when I can turn off it on spotify settings but they removed this option in last update. But it doesnt matter, now its completely gone. Like good old Windows 7. Thank you so much for your wonderful work.
thank you I need to record a three-day seminar, I did not need this crap! you’re the man!
Thank you for your hard work to resolve this issue – much appreciated!
Love you man!!!
One thing I like to request is to please add a timer setting functionality where one can set this OSD’s timeout to less than 5 secs (maybe I will set it to 0.5 sec or even less:)). It will help a lot as people will still get notification to check where their volume is and will also not get distracted.
Note: You can also do something like the OSD only displays while we hold the volume up/down keys and then gone.
Yeah I agree with this.
I don’t know near enough about code but it would seem simple enough to have an editable txt file that the program could pull from on startup.
That would be really awesome.
But I guess if that would be possible easily, the dev would have implented such a feature already….?
Don´t know… 🙂
I started working on such a feature, but it will take some time…
This is a lifesaver. Hats off to you sir. On the previous blog post, a user called Henry asked if it was somehow possible to keep the volume slider itself visible, but remove the unnecessary big box to the right of it. I’d like to ask the same thing. The volume slider itself is handy for me, but the big box next to it isn’t.
For better or worse, I will keep using this awesome little program.
Insane !! Thanks dude 😀 😀
I would love to see this as well.
Would love to see some clarification if they are 1 or 2 separate elements.
I know in Google Chrome you can make it so it only shows the slider via
Thanks very much for updating your HideVolumeOSD to get it working again. Seems like a small thing, but we really appreciate your thoughtfulness. Two thumbs WAY UP!! 🙂
THANK YOU. Jesus what a fricking PITA!
You fixed this. Thank you. Do you have a donation method?
VIRUSTOTAL.com shows 3 virus’s/malware.
Don’t download or install until it’s fixed.
After Windows 10 ‘microsoft defender smartscreen blocked me from downloading the latest 1.3 version, we downloaded it anyway. After scanning your .exe, with Virus Total, we get this; “3 security vendors flagged this file as malicious”. Not very comforting at all.
Does this utility even still work in July 2021 on the current version of windows 10? Thanks
For now, we will have to stop using our keyboard volume key altogether.
Please advise. Thanks again.
Here are the 3 who thinks there’s a problem:
Bkav Pro – W32.AIDetect.malware1
MaxSecure – Trojan.Malware.300983.susgen
McAfee-GW-Edition – BehavesLike.Win32.Generic.tc
I ADORE YOU. Thank you so much!!!!
Thank you so much! Very much appreciated <3
Wow! This works perfect to allow us to configure this FEATURE in Windows.
You can also add it to your Desktop right click menu to invoke it at will…
HideVolumeOSD-1.3 works great but Windows 10 eventually removes the device form the system trey and I have to reinstall it (about every month). Not an issue for me but I know that 3.1 was supposed to eliminate this issue.
So kind, you motivate me to pay it forward! Cheers from Japan 😉
Thanks, Brother!!! You are the best!!!!!
Thanks a lot!
Finally I’ve managed to get rid of that stupidest “improvement”
I hate that idiot who “invented” that shit volume OSD
If you know the idiot name, please share… I will send him a big load of shit, equal to his improvement…
Danke Sehr!! Finally who developed a solution for that pesky annoyance within Windows … Hopefully it won’t show up in Windows 11…?! Thanks again, very much appreciated.
Thank you so much for creating this, the popup has been driving me crazy for ages!
You are an awesome person for making such a awesome tool!
thank you , send it to microshoft 😀
Bro I love it if we could just move this OSD to some unused place of screen such as bottom center or just a linier overlay inside empty space of taskbar from right side. I wish you could do it in next version.
The latest version can display a tooltip near the icon.
Hello. Thank you for the programm!
Is it possible to hide media area but keep volume area?
Você fez uma ferramenta tão simple, mas ao mesmo tempo tão sensacional!!!
Só posso te agradecer infinitamente por isso.
Funciona Perfeitamente no Windows 11
Thanks dude for this ! I curse Microsoft (to be polite, here) every time when I listen music and touch volume on my keyboard or change song. Not only it can’t be moved or hided, but moving the mouse over it it reset countdown until it hides…
With your program, I stop cursing !
Such a great program. Thank you from the non-techical old woman.
THANK YOU!!!! It blows my mind windows doesn’t have a built in feature for something that takes over your screen and blocks stuff for 5 – 60 seconds.
it’s a lifesaver thank you for updating it!
Thank you so much, that popup was driving me crazy.
it works fine, thanks!
Perfect! Now no more stupid overlay. While useful somewhat, the forced overlay that can’t be moved or adjusted blocks part of the display and it is more annoying than useful.
I’ll say the same as everyone else, Microsoft should have added this option themselves, but they didn’t… so thanks a million!
Whenever windows starts, the program lowers the volume from 100 to 98.
This is fixed in the latest version.
In small ways, this is heroic. Thank you to you both! This helps so many people with their sanity.
You are my personal hero! FINALLY.
The idiot, who created this window, especially
– no close icon
– window stays longer if you mouseover it
should just jump of the window.
Thank you very much good sir. People like you make the world a better place to live in!
Love it! Love it! Love it! Finally got rid of this pesky popup
Hi, this works great but for some reason it reduces my Windows volume by one every time I run it. I reset my machine every night and each time it starts up, my volume goes down.
This bug should be fixed in the latest version.
This is working wonderfully! Thank you!
Win 11 seems to have a different approach showing the Volume OSD. With your App ist shows up again and again – but hey, you never said it would be working at Win 11 – so thanks for your good job as long as I could use your tool under Win 10!
Now there is a Windows 11 version.
Thanks it really helped!
They work great, but also hide a screen brightness bar. Can you do so that only the Volume belt is hidden? (Win10)
Tuttuğun altın olsun, Allah razı olsun
(English translation: May whatever you touch be gold, may God be content with you)
Thank you!! I have been dealing with this problem for months while trying to watch videos and game.
