    if I have multiple applications, one has lowered volume?


    Hey all, I recently upgraded to Windows 10 but I've got this weird feature where sometimes if I have more than one application that is using sound open at once, the second application will have it's volume lowered and I can't find a way to restore the proper volume level without closing one of the applications.
    For example, I was watching a video on YouTube, and had a game open at the same time, both were using sound, but the YouTube video was quieter, and I think a bit echoed slightly. As soon as I closed the game application, the YouTube video suddenly raised in volume back to the regular level.
    I looked around the settings on my computer, but I couldn't find anything that would account for this, and it doesn't always happen, so I'm not sure what to do.

    I'm using an Acer laptop, if that helps.

    :)

  2. Nokia Lumia 520 camera features changes after WP8 update

    I contacted the app developer and they confirmed my suspicions. It's a problem that has started occuring on lower-end lumias after the latest update (and they've received multiple reports). The application has not been updated, only the phone's firmware.

    if I have multiple applications, one has lowered volume?

    If you can, go to Control Panel > Sound > Speakers > Properties > Advanced and uncheck: "Allow applications to take exclusive control" and/or "Give exclusive mode applications priority".
