    On-screen volume control/notification


    Previously I was able to pull up the on-screen media display when I press the volume button and previous/next tracks button on my keyboard but now the on-screen notification has disappeared and the volume control is not working. I am using logitech keyboard and I want to use the metro style on-screen display because logitech's on-screen display required user control to turned off and metro apps are not working with UAC turned off.This happens out of sudden, when I reinsert the keyboard it work but until restart it stop working again.I am running Windows 8 Professional.

    Sounds like it's more of a software issue for the Logitech keyboard. There also may be a firmware update as well as a driver/software update from Logitech. I had the same problem with my laptop...although it was a vendor supplied software that I had to download directly from Samsung.

    What's the model of your Logitech keyboard?

    I personally don't think it related to logitech driver, because the volume control behave the same with my acer stock keyboard after pc restart.
