    Skype NOT muting other sounds in Windows 10

    I have headphones set as my Default Communication Device, speakers as my Default Device and when communication activity is detected, all other sounds are set to mute.

    Using Skype (desktop), on W8.1 this worked fine; on answering a call, the music through the speakers is cut. However, on W10 (both Home and Enterprise) the sound through the speakers is not muted.

    Seems to be the exact opposite of the following...

    Skype muting other sounds in Windows 10 Pro.

    Any ideas?
