    Windows Automatically Increases Microphone Volume

    The microphone on the Beyerdynamic MMX 300 is quite loud and sensitive, so I decrease the input volume by 30% in the recording devices menu, but regardless of disallowing access to it from other programs e.g. Skype, it always seems to change back up to 91% after awhile. I'll attach screenshots of the settings I've changed in Skype/recording devices. How would I completely prevent the volume readjusting itself?

    Worked to resolve the issue myself. I learned running CS:GO maxes your input volume when you launch it, which, to control via console command is 'voice_mixer_volume 0.5' (50% volume) and also set Steam in-game microphone volume so it correlates with Windows' input volume.
