[Solved] How to Stop Skype from Lowering the Volume [Partition Manager]


Skype Is Lowering the Volume on Other Apps

In recent times, VoIP (voice over internet protocol) has seen a great rise in popularity. To cash in on this boom and ensure that the process of making and receiving phone calls on Windows becomes as seamless as possible, Microsoft added a feature.

This feature will automatically adjust the volume of other media when it detects that a phone call is being made. You don’t need to tweak any settings to enable it. Actually, it is implemented and enabled by default whenever anyone places a VoIP call using Skype or any other VoIP application.

When this feature is triggered, Windows automatically reduces all the volumes by 50% to 80% (80% is the default). If you are those who frequently make calls from a Windows machine, you may think it is great.

However, if you are a gamer and you like to use any VoIP platform for communication while gaming such as Discord or Google Hangouts, this feature can become a huge issue. Windows will reduce the volume even if you use voice channel built in games.

Although you can make your audio levels completely normal one moment, the minute you start a call, the audio levels go down and this makes gaming difficult.

Skype is one of the most popular instant messaging programs. Many people like using it to make a call. However, some people are seeking methods to stop Skype from lowering the volume on other apps.

In the following content, I will show you how to do that.
