Skype sounds mute other audio

When skype makes a sound (fx. a chat msg sound, youtube videos etc) ppl that i talk to are getting muted (until the sound ends).

 

How can i fix this?

 

(dont know if you need "deeper" systeminfo)

Do you have all Windows updates and updates to your system and any hardware devices by the manufacturers?


If this is a USB device, please unplug it and plug it back in while Skype is running. Then go to your Audio devices in Skype and check both the basic and advanced pages, once the proper devices are selected, please click the "Save" button. If this did not help, please see the below:
