How to stop skype from making everything else so quiet

By default, when you receive a Skype call or are on one, the volume of any other sounds being played by your computer is reduced by up to 80% (exact value depends on your preferences). This isn’t even Skype’s doing – in the interest of transparency, this is actually something that Windows does, not something that Skype does. Windows counts Skype calls as “communications activity”, and Windows is configured to reduce the volume of all other sounds by a specific percentage whenever it detects communications activity on the system. That being the case, whenever a Windows user receives a Skype call or is on one, the volume of any other application or game that is running at the same time is lowered significantly.

This can be remedied at the moment by simply turning the master volume on your computer up, but while doing so will increase the volume of other sounds to an audible degree, it will increase the volume of the Skype call to an extent where it becomes deafening instead of comfortable. In addition, in some cases, Windows bugs out and simply forgets to turn the volume of other sounds back up after it reduces it for an incoming/ongoing Skype call, which can prove to be nothing short of aggravating.

Method 1: Changing Communication Activity Setting:

Thankfully, however, Windows turning down the volume of other sounds as soon as it detects communications activity such as a Skype call is a feature that can be disabled, and this is true in the case of every single version of the Windows Operating System out there. To stop Skype from lowering the volume of other sounds, all you need to do is:

  1. If you’re using Windows 7 or Windows 10, locate and right-click on the Sound icon in the taskbar (represented by a Speaker icon). If you’re using Windows 8 or 8.1, first switch to Desktop mode and then locate and right-click on the Sound icon in the taskbar.
  2. Click on Sounds in the resulting context menu. How to stop skype from making everything else so quiet
  3. Navigate to the Communications tab. How to stop skype from making everything else so quiet
  4. Under the When Windows detects communications activity:, you will find the options Windows has to offer for when it detects communications activity such as a Skype call. When Windows detects communications activity on a computer, it can either mute all other sounds, reduce all other sounds on the computer by 80%, reduce all other sounds by 50% or do nothing at all. These are the only four options Windows has to offer and there is no functionality to create your own, customized option. Select Do nothing by clicking on the radio button located directly next to it. How to stop skype from making everything else so quiet
  5. Click on Apply and then on OK. How to stop skype from making everything else so quiet
  6. Restart your computer.

When the computer boots up, simply check to see whether or not the problem has been resolved. If all went well, you will see that Windows no longer reduces the volume of other sounds being played on your computer (even by a small margin) when it detects communications activity such as a Skype call on the computer. In addition, going through the process above makes sure that the volume of other sounds being played on your computer is never reduced regardless of what communications activity Windows detects, not just Skype calls.

Method 2: Disabling Exclusive Control of Applications

Sound systems have advanced options where they allow applications to take exclusive control of them to change volume or manipulate it. This feature might seem handy but is known to cause glitches where Skype lowers the volume of other applications automatically whenever you are using it. In this solution, we will disable the option and see if this does the trick.

  1. Open the Audio Device as we did in the previous solution and click on the Advanced tab. How to stop skype from making everything else so quietDisable Exclusive Control of Applications
  2. Now, uncheck both the options underneath the heading of Exclusive Mode. Save changes and exit. Relaunch Skype and see if the problem is resolved for good.

How to stop skype from making everything else so quiet

When making Skype calls on a Windows machine, you may have come across a very annoying feature. Before a Skype call starts, your computer’s audio levels are totally fine. You’d can open Skype and message people without any problems. As soon as a Skype call starts, however, your computer’s audio volume takes a sudden and highly noticeable drop. The actual Skype call will be at normal volume, but everything else will seem much quieter.

This kind of behavior can be very irritating, especially for users that go through Skype’s options and settings and find no way to turn it off. There’s a good reason for this: the audio drop has nothing to do with Skype whatsoever! It’s built in to Windows itself and isn’t an official Skype feature. So, before you complain to Skype about the lack of options, give these steps a try and see if they work.

What’s Going On?

What’s actually happening here? First of all, it’s good to realise that Windows has an option that handles this. If Windows detects a telephone call being made by your computer, it can drop the volume by a set amount. This drop can range from a 50% drop to a total muting of all other system sounds. When you make or receive a Skype call, your computer is detecting that you’re currently in a phone call. This causes Windows to drop the volume by however much the option states it should drop.

But hold on a minute – what if you’re sure you’ve never touched, or even seen, this option before? The problem we’re experiencing at that point is a Windows machine being set up to drop the volume by default. This explains why this feature is currently activating, yet you have zero recollection of actually telling Windows to perform this action for you. Thankfully, the option is very easy to get to, so we can tell Windows not to drop the volume (or, if you like the feature, drop it even further!).

How to Turn It Off

First, access the Control Panel. If you’re using Small or Large Icon view, click the option that reads “Sound.” If you’re using Category View, first click on “Hardware and Sound,” then “Sound”.

For Category View.

This will open the Sound window. From here you can set a lot of different options for your speakers or your microphone. We’re not here for any of those, however; the “Communications” tab is what we want.

Here is the option that’s been dipping your audio every time you make or receive a Skype call. You can see you have a few options to pick from, but the one you’re most likely to want to pick is “Do Nothing.”. Select it, then OK out of the window.

Enjoying Less Frustrating Calls

What makes this particular problem so nefarious is how it appears to be a problem with Skype. Sometimes, however, the problem lies with how the operating system handles software rather than the software itself. Turning this option off means that you can enjoy listening to music, watching videos, or playing games while talking to your friends or family. Happy chatting!

How to stop skype from making everything else so quiet

You fire up Skype and suddenly everything on your computer is radically quieter. While that’s great for ensuring you don’t blast your video conference partners with music it can also be a detriment when it mutes sounds you need to hear. Read on as we fix the Skype silencing issue.

Dear How-To Geek,

Lately I’ve been using Skype to talk to my nephew while we play video games together. It works pretty well as a voice chat channel while we’re playing, but there’s one super annoying feature that I can’t seem to fix.

Everytime I start Skype, Skype seems to nearly mute all other audio (every audio source but Skype is probably only 10-20% its previous volume). I’ve looked everywhere in the Skype menus, but I can’t find a single thing that indicates any sort of control over this volume-dampening effect.

I can manually open up the Windows Volume Mixer from the system tray and fiddle with each individual volume control for each individual audio source but that’s 1) a huge pain and 2) only temporary as the second I shut down Skype and start it again then all the volumes are automatically decreased.

What gives? How do I fix this?

Sincerely,

It’s Too Quiet

The reason you can’t find any setting in Skype to control the sweeping volume adjustments that occur when you run Skype concurrently with other sound-producing apps (like your video game) is because it isn’t actually Skype that’s performing the adjust.

Windows automatically recognizes Skype as an audio/video chat communication tool and, by default, assumes that when the communication tool is active that you would like all the other system sounds to be hushed in order to both hear your partner more clearly and not have those sounds blast your microphone and create a bunch of interruptions and background noise.

In your application, however, you likely want to hear the game sounds (wearing headphones to isolate the sounds from the microphone is ideal here) and the person you’re chatting with. In order to adjust things we’ll have to head into the Windows Control Panel.

Navigate to Control Panel -> Hardware and Sound -> Sound and then select the Communications tab (you can also jump to the Sound settings by typing mmsys.cpl in the run dialog box).

How to stop skype from making everything else so quiet

By default Windows automatically adjusts the volume of other sounds by 80% (your guess that the sounds were 10-20% their prior volume was quite a good one). You can select to have the sounds only reduced by 50%, to be completely muted, or for Windows to do nothing at all.

In your situation it’s ideal to set it to do nothing at all and then, if you find any particular sound is too loud, you can open up the Volume Mixer and make small adjustments as necessary.

If you are running Windows 7 or later, then you may have run into an odd behavior in your Windows experience. If you’re running a program that uses sound, you may have noticed the volume of your sound is automatically reduced when you run certain programs, such as Skype or games with audio chat channels.

How to stop skype from making everything else so quiet

This can be very frustrating and many users have been really upset at this seemingly random volume reduction problem. As it happens, it’s not random and it’s easy to fix. In this article, I will show you why this happens, and how to stop it from happening again.

What’s Up, Redmond?

Longtime Microsoft watchers know that what you really have to watch out for isn’t malevolent intention on the part of the Redmond-based software giant. If Microsoft tries to be evil, they usually just mess it up and don’t really do anything. No, it’s when Microsoft tries to HELP that you have to look out, and this volume glitch is a sterling example of this phenomenon.

How to stop skype from making everything else so quiet Agenturfotografin/Shutterstock

Here’s what’s happening. As the voice over IP (VoIP) services became more and more common here in the 21st century, Microsoft wanted to make the process of placing and receiving phone calls on the Windows desktop to be more seamless (you’ve surely noticed how you make and receive all your phone calls on your Windows machine now, right?)

To facilitate this, Microsoft added a feature starting in Windows 7 and present all the way through Windows 10 that attempts to detect when a user is making or receiving a VoIP call. When the operating system thinks a call is being made, it automatically lowers the volume of other apps (or even mutes them) while the call is in progress. You know the way you didn’t even ask it to do.

Unfortunately, although this feature in and of itself is not an intrinsically stupid idea, it turns out that Windows is really, really bad at detecting whether something is a VoIP call or not. Multiplayer games that contain a voice channel, for example, often trigger the “feature”, as do outright VoIP apps like Skype or Google Hangouts.

The real difficulty is that people using Skype or Hangouts or games usually have their relative volumes configured the way they want them configured when they start doing a chat. Microsoft is doing the equivalent of rearranging your desk for you “because I’m sure you want things to be organized”, right after you’ve just gotten everything the way you like it.

Thankfully, this immensely annoying feature can be easily disabled.

Step 1

All you need to do is launch your Control Panel or your Settings (depending on your Windows version) and head to the Sound configuration dialog.

How to stop skype from making everything else so quiet

Step 2

In the Sound configuration window, click on the “Communications” tab. This is the location where this automatic reduction feature is configured.

How to stop skype from making everything else so quiet

Step 3

Click ‘OK’ to finish. It may be wise to restart your computer once changing this setting.

How to stop skype from making everything else so quiet

By default, the option to “Reduce the volume of other sounds by 80%” is selected. Change this to “Do nothing” to effectively kill the feature. If, however, you actually find this feature useful, you can further refine it by having Windows only reduce the volume of other apps by 50%, or by having the operating system mute all other sounds entirely.

Troubleshooting

If this hasn’t helped your volume woes there are a few other things to think about before giving up. Let’s talk about some troubleshooting tips to help you if you’re still having the problem.

  • Are your keyboard volume buttons clean? – We spend hours on our computers meaning debris, dust, and even food particles can become lodged in the keys. Use an approved duster or clean cloth to remove any contaminants from your keyboard.
  • Check for any new system updates – Patches can fix a plethora of wonky computer issues. Install any updates and restart your computer to see if the volume problems cease.
  • Update your audio drivers – Head over to the task manager and navigate to the “Audio inputs and outputs section. Right-click to update the drivers.
  • Uninstall updates – Many users have reported audio issues after updates. Windows users can uninstall updates by visiting the “Updates & Security” tab, then clicking on “View Update History.”

My setting keeps going back to 80%, what can I do?

You can either turn it back to u0022Do Nothingu0022 every time you open an app, or you can select the option to reduce the volume by 50% to lessen the impact. Either way, several users have reported that the volume settings revert whenever restarting an app.

Does this affect external speakers too?

Yes, many users who have external speakers experience volume fluctuations. Try using another port or alternate speaker for sound issues.

คุณเปิดใช้งาน Skype และทุกอย่างในคอมพิวเตอร์ของคุณเงียบกว่าเดิม ในขณะที่ดีสำหรับการทำให้มั่นใจว่าคุณจะไม่ทำลายคู่หูการประชุมทางวิดีโอด้วยเสียงเพลง แต่มันก็อาจเป็นอันตรายเมื่อมันปิดเสียงที่คุณต้องฟัง อ่านต่อไปเมื่อเราแก้ไขปัญหาการปิดเสียงของ Skype.

เรียนรู้วิธีการเกินบรรยาย,

เมื่อเร็ว ๆ นี้ฉันใช้ Skype เพื่อคุยกับหลานชายของฉันในขณะที่เราเล่นวิดีโอเกมด้วยกัน มันใช้งานได้ดีเช่นเดียวกับช่องทางการแชทด้วยเสียงในขณะที่เรากำลังเล่น แต่มีคุณลักษณะที่น่ารำคาญอย่างยิ่งที่ฉันไม่สามารถแก้ไขได้.

ทุกครั้งที่ฉันเริ่ม Skype ดูเหมือนว่า Skype จะปิดเสียงอื่น ๆ เกือบทั้งหมด (ทุกแหล่งเสียง แต่ Skype น่าจะมีระดับเสียงก่อนหน้านี้เพียง 10-20%) ฉันได้ดูทุกที่ในเมนู Skype แต่ฉันไม่พบสิ่งใดที่บ่งบอกการควบคุมเอฟเฟกต์ลดเสียงรบกวนได้.

ฉันสามารถเปิด Windows Volume Mixer ด้วยตนเองจากถาดระบบและซอกับการควบคุมระดับเสียงของแต่ละบุคคลสำหรับแหล่งเสียงของแต่ละบุคคล แต่นั่นคือ 1) ความเจ็บปวดขนาดใหญ่และ 2) เพียงชั่วคราวเป็นวินาทีที่ฉันปิด Skype และเริ่มอีกครั้งแล้วทั้งหมด ปริมาณจะลดลงโดยอัตโนมัติ.

สิ่งที่ช่วยให้? ฉันจะแก้ไขสิ่งนี้ได้อย่างไร?

อย่างจริงใจ,

มันเงียบเกินไป

เหตุผลที่คุณไม่พบการตั้งค่าใด ๆ ใน Skype เพื่อควบคุมการปรับระดับเสียงการกวาดที่เกิดขึ้นเมื่อคุณเรียกใช้ Skype พร้อมกับแอปที่สร้างเสียงอื่น ๆ (เช่นวิดีโอเกมของคุณ) เป็นเพราะมันไม่ใช่ Skype จริง ๆ.

Windows จะรับรู้ Skype โดยอัตโนมัติว่าเป็นเครื่องมือสื่อสารการสนทนาด้วยเสียง / วิดีโอและโดยค่าเริ่มต้นจะถือว่าเมื่อเครื่องมือสื่อสารนั้นเปิดใช้งานซึ่งคุณต้องการให้ระบบเสียงอื่น ๆ ทั้งหมดเงียบลงเพื่อให้ทั้งคู่ได้ยินเสียงของคุณชัดเจนยิ่งขึ้น เสียงระเบิดไมโครโฟนของคุณและสร้างการหยุดชะงักและเสียงพื้นหลัง.

อย่างไรก็ตามในแอปพลิเคชันของคุณคุณอาจต้องการได้ยินเสียงของเกม (สวมหูฟังเพื่อแยกเสียงจากไมโครโฟนเหมาะอย่างยิ่งที่นี่) และ คนที่คุณกำลังแชทด้วย ในการปรับสิ่งต่าง ๆ เราจะต้องมุ่งไปที่แผงควบคุมของ Windows.

ไปที่แผงควบคุม -> ฮาร์ดแวร์และเสียง -> เสียงจากนั้นเลือกแท็บการสื่อสาร (คุณสามารถข้ามไปที่การตั้งค่าเสียงโดยพิมพ์ mmsys.cpl ในกล่องโต้ตอบเรียกใช้).

How to stop skype from making everything else so quiet

ตามค่าเริ่มต้น Windows จะปรับระดับเสียงของเสียงอื่น ๆ โดยอัตโนมัติ 80% (คุณเดาว่าเสียงนั้นอยู่ที่ 10-20% ระดับเสียงก่อนหน้าของพวกเขาค่อนข้างดีทีเดียว) คุณสามารถเลือกให้เสียงลดลงได้เพียง 50% เพื่อปิดเสียงอย่างสมบูรณ์หรือให้ Windows ไม่ทำอะไรเลย.

ในสถานการณ์ของคุณมันเหมาะอย่างยิ่งที่จะตั้งค่าให้ไม่ทำอะไรเลยถ้าคุณพบว่าเสียงใด ๆ ที่ดังเกินไปคุณสามารถเปิดตัวปรับแต่งเสียงและปรับแต่งเล็กน้อยตามความจำเป็น.

What gives? How do I fix this?

Причина, чому ви не можете знайти жодного налаштування в Skype, щоб контролювати великі коригування обсягу, які виникають під час запуску Skype одночасно з іншими програмами, що роблять звук (наприклад, ваша відеоігра), тому що насправді не відбувається коригування.

Windows автоматично визнає Skype як інструмент комунікації з аудіо / відео чатом, і за замовчуванням передбачає, що коли інструмент комунікації активний, що ви хочете, щоб звук всієї іншої системи звучав, щоб бути смішним, щоб якомога більше чути вашого партнера і не мати таких звучить під тиском мікрофона і створює безліч переривань і фонового шуму.

Проте, у вашій програмі, швидше за все, ви хочете почути звуки гри (тут ідеально підійдуться навушники для виділення звуків із мікрофону)і особа, з якою ви спілкуєтесь. Щоб налаштувати речі, нам доведеться перейти до панелі керування Windows.

Перейдіть до Панель керування -> Обладнання та звук -> Звук, а потім виберіть вкладку Комунікації (ви також можете перейти до налаштувань звуку, набравши mmsys.cpl у діалоговому вікні запуску).

How to stop skype from making everything else so quiet

За замовчуванням Windows автоматично налаштовує гучність інших звуків на 80% (уявіть, що звуки були 10-20%, їхній попередній том був досить гарним). Ви можете вибрати, щоб звуки зменшувались лише на 50%, щоб бути повністю приглушеними, або для Windows, щоб взагалі нічого не робити.

У вашій ситуації це ідеально підходить для того, щоб воно взагалі не робило нічого, і тоді, якщо ви знайдете якийсь конкретний звук занадто гучним, ви можете відкрити Mix Mixer і внести необхідні зміни.

Jūs užsidegiate “Skype” ir staiga viskas jūsų kompiuteryje yra radikaliai tyliau. Nors tai puikus užtikrinant, kad vaizdo įrašų konferencijų partneriai nebūtų išpūsti muzika, tai taip pat gali pakenkti, kai jis išjungia garsus, kuriuos jums reikia girdėti. Perskaityk, kai ištaisysime “Skype” silencingumo problemą.

Gerbiamasis “How-To Geek”,

Pastaruoju metu naudoju Skype, kad galėčiau kalbėtis su savo sūnėnais, kartu žaisdami vaizdo žaidimus. Kuriant balso pokalbių kanalą, jis veikia puikiai, tačiau yra viena labai erzina funkcija, kurią man atrodo neįmanoma išspręsti.

Kaskart, kai pradėjau “Skype”, “Skype” atrodo beveik nutildo visus kitus garso įrašus (kiekvienas garso šaltinis “Skype” tikriausiai tik 10-20% ankstesnio tomo). Aš žiūrėjau visur “Skype” meniu, bet negaliu rasti nieko, kas rodo bet kokį šio tūrio slopinimo efekto valdymą.

Aš galiu rankiniu būdu atidaryti “Windows Volume Mixer” iš sistemos dėklo ir gudrumo su kiekvienu atskiro garso šaltinio kiekvienu atskiru garsumo valdikliu, bet tai yra 1) didžiulis skausmas ir 2) tik laikinas, antra, aš uždariau “Skype” ir vėl jį paleidžiau, tada visi tūriai automatiškai sumažėja.

Kas suteikia? Kaip tai ištaisyti?

Pagarbiai,

Tai per ramybė

Priežastis, dėl kurios negalite rasti jokio “Skype” nustatymo, kad galėtumėte valdyti garsą, kuris kyla, kai paleidžiate “Skype” vienu metu su kitomis garsą gaminančiomis programomis (pvz., jūsų vaizdo žaidimas) yra tai, kad iš tikrųjų “Skype” neveikia.

“Windows” automatiškai atpažįsta “Skype” kaip garso / vaizdo pokalbių ryšio įrankį ir pagal numatytuosius dalykus daro prielaidą, kad, kai komunikacijos priemonė yra aktyvi, kaip ir visa kita sistema, skamba, kad būtų nuraminti, kad galėtumėte aiškiau išgirsti jūsų partnerį, o šitie garsai neturi sprogti jūsų mikrofono ir sukurti daugybę pertraukimų ir fono triukšmo.

Jūsų prašyme, tačiau jūs greičiausiai norite išgirsti Žaidimas skamba (čia yra ideali ausinių, skirtų garsams izoliuoti iš mikrofono) ir asmuo, su kuriuo kalbate. Norėdami reguliuoti dalykus, turėsime eiti į “Windows” valdymo skydą.

Peršokti į valdymo skydą -> Aparatūra ir garsas -> Garsas, tada pasirinkite skirtuką Ryšiai (taip pat galite pereiti prie garso nustatymų, įvesdami mmsys

How to stop skype from making everything else so quiet

Pagal numatytuosius nustatymus Windows automatiškai nustato 80% kitų garsų garsumą (jūs manote, kad skambučiai buvo 10-20%, o jų garsas buvo gana geras). Galite pasirinkti, kad garsai būtų sumažinami tik 50%, jie būtų visiškai nutildyti arba “Windows” nieko nedarys.

Jūsų situacijoje idealiai tinka nustatyti, kad jis nieko nedarys, tada, jei radote bet kokį tam tikras garsas yra per daug garsus, galite atidaryti “Volume Mixer” ir prireikus atlikti nedidelius pakeitimus.

Spoustáš Skype a náhle všechno v počítači je radikálnější. Zatímco to je skvělé pro zajištění, že nebudete hrát své partnery s videokonferencí s hudbou, může to být také újmu, když ztlumí zvuky, které potřebujete slyšet. Přečtěte si, jak řešíme problém s umlčením Skype.

Vážený How-To Geek,

V poslední době používám Skype, abych promluvil s mým synovcem, zatímco hrajeme společně s videohrami. Během hraní funguje to dobře jako hlasový chatový kanál, ale je tu jedna super otravná funkce, kterou nemohu opravit.

Kdykoli spustím Skype, zdá se, že Skype téměř ztlumí všechny ostatní zvuky (každý zdroj zvuku ale Skype je pravděpodobně jen 10-20% jeho předchozího objemu). Hledal jsem všude v nabídkách Skype, ale nenajdu ani jednu věc, která by naznačovala jakoukoli kontrolu nad tímto tlumícím efektem.

Můžu ručně otevřít systém Windows Volume Mixer ze systémové lišty a housle s každým jednotlivým ovládáním hlasitosti pro každý jednotlivý zdroj zvuku, ale to je 1) obrovská bolest a 2) jen dočasná jako druhá, kdy jsem zavřel Skype a znovu ho spustil, pak se všechny hlasy automaticky snížily

Co dává? Jak to napravím?

S pozdravem

Je to příliš tiché

Důvod, proč nenajdete žádné nastavení v aplikaci Skype, můžete ovládat změření hlasitosti, která se vyskytuje při spouštění Skype současně s jinými aplikacemi produkujícími zvuk (jako je vaše videohry) je proto, že není vlastně Skype, který provádí úpravu.

Systém Windows automaticky rozpozná Skype jako komunikační nástroj pro audio / video chat a ve výchozím nastavení předpokládá, že pokud je komunikační nástroj aktivní, stejně jako všechny ostatní zvuky systému, které mají být tlumeny, aby slyšely vašeho partnera jasněji a neměli tyto zvuky výbuch vašeho mikrofonu a vytvářet spoustu přerušení a hluku v pozadí.

Ve vaší aplikaci však pravděpodobně budete chtít slyšet hra zní (nosit sluchátka pro oddělení zvuků z mikrofonu je ideální zde) a osoba, se kterou jste chatovali. Chcete-li upravit věci, musíme se dostat do ovládacího panelu Windows.

Přejděte na Ovládací panely -> Hardware a zvuk -> Zvuk a poté vyberte kartu Komunikace (můžete také přeskočit na Nastavení zvuku zadáním příkazu mmsys .cpl v dialogovém okně spuštění.)

How to stop skype from making everything else so quiet

Ve výchozím nastavení systém Windows automaticky upravuje hlasitost dalších zvuků o 80% (odhadujete, že zvuk byl 10-20%, jejich předchozí hlasitost byla docela dobrá). Můžete zvolit, aby se zvuky snížily pouze o 50%, aby byly úplně ztlumeny, nebo aby systém Windows vůbec nic neudělal.

Ve vaší situaci je ideální nastavit, aby nic neudělalo, a pak, Zvláštní zvuk je příliš hlasitý, můžete hlasitý mixér otevřít a podle potřeby provést malé úpravy.

În timp ce acest lucru este minunat pentru a vă asigura că nu vă blast partenerii de conferințe video cu muzică, aceasta poate fi, de asemenea, un detriment atunci când se stinge sunete trebuie să auziți. Citiți în timp ce rezolvăm problema silențierii Skype.

Dear How-To Geek,

Lately I’ve been using Skype to talk to my nephew while we play video games together. It works pretty well as a voice chat channel while we’re playing, but there’s one super annoying feature that I can’t seem to fix.

Everytime I start Skype, Skype seems to nearly mute all other audio (every audio source but Skype is probably only 10-20% its previous volume). I’ve looked everywhere in the Skype menus, but I can’t find a single thing that indicates any sort of control over this volume-dampening effect.

I can manually open up the Windows Volume Mixer from the system tray and fiddle with each individual volume control for each individual audio source but that’s 1) a huge pain and 2) only temporary as the second I shut down Skype and start it again then all the volumes are automatically decreased.

What gives? How do I fix this?

Motivul pentru care nu puteți găsi nicio setare în Skype pentru a controla ajustările volumului de măturat care apar atunci când rulați Skype simultan cu alte aplicații producătoare de sunet (cum ar fi jocul video) este pentru că Skype nu efectuează reglarea.

Windows recunoaște automat Skype ca instrument de comunicare audio / video și, în mod implicit, presupune că atunci când instrumentul de comunicare este activ, doriți ca toate celelalte sunete ale sistemului să fie silențioase, pentru a asculta partenerul dvs. mai clar și pentru a nu avea sunetele explozie microfon și de a crea o grămadă de întreruperi și de zgomot de fundal.

În aplicația dvs., cu toate acestea, probabil doriți să auziți sunetele jocului (purtarea căștilor pentru a izola sunetele de la microfon este ideală aici)și persoana cu care vorbești. Pentru a ajusta lucrurile, trebuie să ne îndreptăm spre Panoul de control Windows.

Navigați la Panoul de control -> Hardware și sunet -> Sunet și apoi selectați fila Comunicații (de asemenea, puteți să accesați setările de sunet tastând mmsys.cpl în caseta de dialog de rulare).
