    From within the taskbar I can mute sound or restore it. But when I click the sound icon and mute the sound, there is no cross in the sound icon so I can't visually see that sound is muted. Only when I go back to the sound bar window I can see that the speaker is muted. Before there was immediately an icon that said that sound was muted, also in the system tray.

    I did. But the problem remains. The sound icon in the system tray is indicating that sound is muted. But when I unmute, the cross doesn't go away and the tooltip says sound is muted although sound is on. In the sound window (slider) the icon only changes when I close and reopen the window.

    UPDATE: I disabled all sound devices in device manager and then enabled them again. Now all icons in the system tray and slider window work fine!

    When I disabled the sound devices and enable them again, the problem is solved for a short time. After that, it returns. I can disable and enable sound via the soundbar on the taskbar. But the sound icon in the system tray doesnt change at all. Icons in the soundbar only change when I close the soundbar and open it again.

    can you try uninstalling the sound drivers in device manager and then letting it install them again by itself? Make sure internet is on for this
