    I know this sounds stupid but I have a question. When adjusting volumes using the side buttons, I get two columns; One tall column that adjusts the sound level and a second column with a person icon that does nothing. Can someone tell me what that column is for? Or if someone knows a website that explains the settings. I would greatly appreciate it Screenshot_20220218-043811.png

    That little person icon indicates you've got an accessibility feature enabled - like the shortcut button at the bottom right of your screenshot. It might be the "Select to Speak" feature, perhaps? (Or, at least, enabling "Select to Speak" on my phone got the dual volume controls shown in your screenshot. There may be others that result in the same thing.)

    Take a look at Settings > Accessibility and turn off anything you're not actively using.

    Thanks so much for your help. So that slider adjusts the volume if I'm using the sound amplifier from that accessibility button? I tried searching for the answer but never found anything about that column. Do you know of a site that acts like an instruction manual that has this information? That way I can look things up myself.

    That's what I needed. Again, thanks. I was using an LG V40 w/ Android 10 before this phone. Changing brands and Android versions at one time has caused my confusion. Hopefully this information will solve my problems. :thumbsupdroid:
