    Automatic volume reduction


    I am writting here because I have literally turned the whole Google around looking for a solution. Nothing seems to work.

    The problem is that the volume of different sources of sound, for example YouTube, gets reduced if I turn another differenc source of sound, for example League of Legends. So, once I play League of Legends, my YouTube music gets reduced. If I first run League and THEN YouTube, then YouTube gets reduced, if I first press PLAY on YT and then go to League, my League volume gets reduced. I don't know what the hell is going on and I hate it. I have Windows 10 Pro and I have tried the "Do Nothing" option at sound settings. I have checked out every single tab on sound settings and nothing works.

    This problem started once I installed W10, it worked fine on W7.

    Please help, I am desperate.

    It suddenly started working, I have no idea why and how, but I'm glad it works. Maybe the restart was needed in order for Windows 10 to recognize the change. I don't know. This was the only thing I changed so this probably must be it. Thank you for the help guys. I will mark it as resolved.
