Weird Icons showing in most windows

I’m not sure if this is an Unreal bug, a windows 10 bug, or some other conflict, but I’m getting a microphone icon and a refresh icon showing up in nearly every unreal window. I don’t have this showing up in other programs, like firefox, blender, etc, but I do think I’ve seen it pop up in the windows 10 task bar. The icons pass through mouse clicks. Anyone have any idea what’s going on?


Hey AssumptionSoup,

Those look to me like the Nvidia Shadowplay icons. Do you have this feature turned on? If so, that would explain why they are displaying in the editor. I’d recommend turning those off while working in UE4 if possible.

If this is not the case, please let me know and I can continue to investigate.

Have a great day

Oh man, you nailed it! Thanks so much! Those icons were driving me insane. Disabling shadowplay removes the icons immediately.

How do you turn this off?

Superb, thanks for prompt help :slight_smile:

no probs bro
