    so some may remember the whole thing where chrome made a black box with a play/pause button pop up next to your volume control. that was a simple fix, it was fine.

    but...now i'm getting something like that, but with skype.

    i still have the chrome thing disabled, so i'm completely stuck on how to get rid of this thing. its annoying, its large and clunky, and just gets in the way.

  2. Can't adjust the alarm volume

    Currently there is no way to adjust the volume of the alarm clock sound. Even with GDR2 installed.

    All i can suggest is for you to choose an alarm sound that isn't so disturbing.

    I do agree though that the ability to adjust the alarm volume should be there along with the ability to have separate volume controls for other aspects of the phone's sound system.

    Audio recording settings / microphone settings on skype not working

    Hi Bill,

    Thank you for writing to Microsoft Community Forums.

    There is an option ‘Automatically adjust microphone settings’ in Skype. Try adjusting Skype sound in the application by following the below steps:



    a. Open Skype.

    b. Navigate to Tools > Options > Audio Settings > Microphone.

    c. Select the default device.

    d. Uncheck the ‘Automatically adjust microphone settings’.

    Also, I suggest you to adjust Skype sound in the control panel to fix the recording issues. You can do this by following the below steps:

    a. Open ‘Control panel’.

    b. Select ‘Sounds and Audio Devices’.

    c. Click on ‘Playback’ tab.

    d. Verify that nothing is set to mute.

    e. Verify that microphone is checked under the ‘Recording’ tab.

    Try updating Skype, if any update is available. Please follow the above steps and get back if the issue persists.

    Hope it helps.

  4. skype pause thing next to volume control when trying to adjust it?

    Using keyboard keys to adjust volume.

    Hi,

    Currently the only way that I can adjust the volume of my headphones is by using the buttons on the headphones or by adjusting the volume in the software that is playing the audio. When I use the volume keys on my keyboard or adjust the volume in the control
    panel, it shows me that the volume is increasing but the volume of the headphones does not increase at all. Does anyone know how to use the volume keys to adjust headphone volume?

    I'm also not sure which topic this falls under in the given list so I am sorry if this is in the wrong place.

    Thanks.
