No sound when switching to desktop on windows 8

I am having a problem with my skype were whenever I minimize it by switching to desktop mode from the windows 8 app it stops playing the sound so I can't hear the people talking. It is getting very annoying and I can't figure out the problem.

WHY HAS NO ONE FIXED THIS YET. It seems to be a big problem for A LOT of people, including me. The most annoying thing is that it was working outside of the actual programme and has suddenly stopped, even though I've done NOTHING different.
