    That clunky square volume slider that appears on your screen every time you change the volume isn't very Windows 11. The new OS shuns everything with a sharp corner, and that little volume indicator is as sharp as they come. So, Microsoft is replacing it with something a little more artsy in the upcoming Windows build.

    The Windows 11 launch has been a strange ordeal. It arrived as a half-baked OS overhaul that we weren't sure was worth rushing out to download at the time. It is slowly trudging towards being a fully-fledged OS in its own right, however, and with each new Windows update we receive one or two changes to make it feel a little more complete.

    The latest: new flyout (as Microsoft likes to name its on-screen indicators) designs for hardware indicators, including volume, brightness, camera privacy, camera on/off, and airplane mode. All of which will abide by your choice of light or dark mode.

    That's pretty neat, then, as the existing volume and brightness indicators are definitely out of place amongst the translucent and curvaceous windows of Windows 11.
