  1. Some programs mute the sound of other programs SOLVED


    Hi, I just figured this out myself because Microsoft refuses to answer this question. I don't know why they won't, but they won't. I'm posting this here because this answer needs to get out there. This is probably going to get taken down because Microsoft support hates supporting people in any way, especially when other people do it for them.


    I had the problem of "Discord" muting other apps when someone talked. Discord had functionality to do this, but it was turned off.

    ... It turns out, SO DOES WINDOWS. To fix this issue from a communications program, go to the sound control panel, "communications tab" and the "stream attenuation" should be set to none to turn this off.


    Boom. Solved it.


    Your welcome, Microsoft.

  3. muted app has sound

    To be more specific. App is Bitcoin Miner. Ad appears as a video in app window. App still shows muted symbol, but sound is playing. There is a back button that stops the video and reverts app to normal state. Ad doesn't affect apps work. My security is
    far beyond suggested, so there is no malware nor any other unwanted program. Ad is part of the app, but sound somehow circumvents the muting of the app. Mixer shows only that app and system sounds, no other apps appear when sound occur.

    muted app has sound

    Tried first few steps, and fail to reproduce the event. Either ad with sound didn't appear or it did, but sound was muted (which was the point). Anyway, I consider the matter solved, thanks for help.
