Windows 10: Music apps won't play when minimized

    Music apps won't play when minimized

    So, I use a few music apps (Tunein, Audials, Third Party Pandora App). I notice that, when you minimize all of them in Windows 10, the music stops like a second later.

    How do you fix this?

    It didn't do this in Windows 8.1. I had no problem running Tunein for instance minimized, and still able to hear music.

    Update: Played around with it some more. I disabled every sound output and input except one, and it still does it. I checked my laptop, which has Windows 10, with the same apps, and there is no problem. It continues to play when minimized. It will come back if I change the volume up or down with the keyboard, I think because there is a pop up with the artist/song and the volume. As soon as it fades, music stops.

    Update: I noticed in the "Details" menu of the "Task Manager", when you minimize the program, it switches to "suspended" after a second. When I maximize it again, it switches back to "running" immediately. This does not happen on the other computer.
