Skype turning down other sounds

Hey

 

I was wondering if there's ANY way to keep skype from turning down all other sounds when I accept a call, it's annoying as hell having my music halved when it's already pretty low compaired.

Re: Skype turning down other sounds

If you're running Windows 7 or Vista, go to Control Panel > Sounds > Communications and select "Do nothing."

 

See if that helps.

g4pilut's suggestion should work, but you should also realize fully that it is Windows that is lowering the volume of other apps, not Skype
