How to Disable Windows Volume Popup

You are working on code or writing something important, you are in the flow, you reduce or increase the volume a bit for the perfect sound-level and pops-up this ugly big annoying Windows 10 volume control disrupting not only your thought process but captures the screen real-estate for 5 seconds before it fades away.

This is down-right evil and will no longer be tolerated 🙂
Well thanks to Marcus Venturi there is a way to disable this.

Download and install the small (about 300 KB) software “HideVolumeOSD” from his site at: http://wordpress.venturi.de/?p=1

It lives happily in the tray or you can hide it completely and it will disable the volume popup.
