    When a Press volume up and down at the same time, repeatedly, the phone screen flashes them goes back to normal and the phone vibrates. What is this for and has this always existed?

    Happens on my 1520 as well. I think it's just a warning that you're mashing the buttons.

    That is weird. Three rapid presses of volume up+down result in three vibrations and what look like a screen reset.

    Perhaps it's some kind of service test?

    Volume Up and Volume down at the same time. 3 rapid presses, like a triple click.

    It's definitely something programmed into the OS. It's not random but a very specific input and response. It could just be something as simple as a vibrate check. It feels like the phone echoes your clicks back.

    Otherwise, I see nothing useful here other than something of curiosity.

    It makes a Surface 3 beep and the screen blinks similar to the phone.

    Going to drive me crazy, lol. Works on a surface and the phones. Perhaps window central can do an expos and find out what this is.

    Yeah, I read about this on WMPoweruser a day or two ago. No idea what it does though, just kinda weird that it even does this.

    It's a hit or miss for me. Sometimes it vibrates thrice and refreshed the screen. Sometimes, it does not do anything.

    Probably a misspress of the keys? I can get it every time on my 1520. On the Windows 10 forum I just posted a theory that's it is a display reset.

    If I had volume up/down keys on my keyboard I'd try it there but it works with my Surface 3's volume buttons.

    Think you are probably the discoverer of this Easter egg.

    Omg my laptop does the same when you spam volume up, volume down, and mute in that order (minus the vibrating).

    it does that on my laptop as well, but I have to press Vol up/dwn three times, just a flash and a beep, if I do it 4 or 5 times quickly the screen flashes and beeps 2 and 3 times resp.
