    Audio Device and Taskbar Icons Missing, Solved


      NUC7i5BNHXF 16GB Optane 1TB HDD Win10 Pro Insider Build 17686

      I uninstalled Realtek High Definition Audio. Disabled 2381 Intel Display Audio

      I now have SHARP TV on  HDMI Set as Default Audio Device and a small USB Soundbar on a generic audio driver. Microphone is Logitech Webcam.

      Skype has been set to use Webcam mic. and USB audio device without any problem.

      High Performance Power scheme but setting the same for all. The timers are off course whatever you choose.

      Display Sleep 3 Minutes

      PC Sleep after 5 Minutes

      HDD Sleep after 10 Minutes

      I let the computer go to sleep by itself and let it sleep for more than 10 minutes(would loose my audio devices on wake up before)

      Wake up PC using keyboard power button, click mouse on wake-up screen PC switches to Log in screen, Enter PIN, PC wakes up.

      if TV is Tuned ON it automatically comes UP with Default Audio device, SHARP TV HDMI

      If TV is Tuned OFF it automatically comes UP with USB Audio Device

      Turn on TV and HDMI AUDIO becomes enabled (already set as default device)

      I have no Idea why the Icons aren't disappearing anymore.

      I have had no audio issues since doing the above changes.

      I'm not sure if this affects Headphone Jack since I don't use it.
