Windows 10’s volume controls could be getting a big overhaul in the near future

One of the most essential features of Windows 10 – the operating system’s volume controls – could be getting a big overhaul in the near future. As Windows Latest reports, a new preview build of Windows 10, Build 19577, contains code that suggests there will be new volume controls.

Back in 2018, a leak suggested that Microsoft has been planning on significantly changing Windows 10’s volume control in a future release. However, despite Microsoft updating Windows 10 several times over the years, the operating system’s volume controls have remained unchanged.At the moment, the way you control the volume in Windows 10 is pretty basic, but it looks like Microsoft is planning to radically overhaul it so that it’s much more useful.

It appears that Microsoft is planning to move all these controls to the new volume flyout, which you can access by clicking the volume icon in the system tray.Currently, taskbar flyout only allows users to control the volume of the headphone or speakers, but a future Windows 10 update will also allow you to access the media controls. In addition, our site z2u.com has a large quantity of safe Windows 10 Home Product Key For Sale.

The new flyout also shows the album cover of the music along with the app name that’s playing the music. In theory, the new flyout should work with all the existing apps that already support Windows 8 era left-aligned volume flyout.In our testing, the updated flyout launches only when we click on its icon in the system tray. It currently doesn’t support keyboard multimedia keys.

There’s a chance that the new volume controls would become available for users in the Windows Insider Program later this year, but the arrival of the updated volume bar is still uncertain.Obviously, these changes will not ship with Windows 10’s 20H1 (version 2004 update), which has been finalized and is set for public rollout in April/May 2020.

Escape From Tarkov is currently not available on Steam

Escape from Tarkov has been available in early access since 2016, slowly amassing players, but since its release it’s only been available for pre-order from the game’s official site. The survival shooter has exploded in popularity recently, having received a major update in October 2019 which introduced Hideouts as well as several new items and bug fixes, and briefly became the most viewed game on Twitch thanks, in part, to some prominent streamers picking it up over the holidays. This has many players wondering if a Steam release is planned. It’s been a while since Russian developer Battlestate Games has commented on this, but all signs suggest that Escape From Tarkov will come to Steam… eventually.

Fans seem to certainly be in favor of the idea of this video game making an appearance on Steam. In fact, some fans have even created petitions for the game to arrive on the launcher. Hopefully, the developers will take some notes rather soon. Although the video game isn’t yet available on the platform, one YouTube user has released a video of what would be like when using a Steam Controller.

The clearest evidence is from a 2016 interview with WCCFTech, in which developer Pavel Dyatlov says that the game will come to Steam once it reaches 1.0. “We will first release the game on our platform and then we will launch on Steam, that’s the plan,” Dyatlov said, also mentioning that the game could come to consoles after its PC release.

As for a release date, the FAQ states that the game will undergo some beta testing on Steam, meaning it will probably be released there sometime before the full 1.0 launch. It’s also worth noting that both versions of the game will share the same servers, so the playerbase won’t be divided based on their launcher choices. Despite a lengthy period of radio silence on the topic, Escape From Tarkov is in all likelihood still slated to get a Steam release in the future, although an exact timeframe still remains to be seen.
