    This happened to my Volume Indicator. It turned to grey.. I know that it's supposed to be blue.. not gray.. can someone help me thanks!

    Does this have anything to do with Windows Update? Thanks

    Windows 8.1.1 Pro with Media Center

    Just a suggestion.
    The upgrade to 8.1 is free.

    I like 8.1 better than 8.

    If you make a system image with Macrium Reflect you can easily revert to 8 if you desire to.

    My volume indicator is different than yours with 8.1.

    I have 8.1 Pro.
