How To Stop Skype From Muting background Sound / Music

I Use Windows 8 BUT i dont use the skype "App" i use the desktop version.

I Already did other solutions such as the run blah blah and turning it to do nothing. But my pandora APP and other sounds continue to get muted while in a call. Any other options ?

Make sure Do Nothing option is selected.

 

Then set the sound output to speakers.

 

In the call, Click Call quality >> Speaker >> Set the output to your speakers.

Double Checked the Do Nothing,

And it is set for my speakers.

Still happens with incoming / out going calls.
