Windows - The volume level changes randomly

December 2016



Issue


I have noticed that when I listen to music on my laptop, the volume level randomly changes. For a couple of seconds the volume level is decreased and then return to a the normal level.

Solution


This problem may be due to built-in microphone of your laptop.
Windows is by default configured to automatically lower the sound each time it detects a communication activiy...
To disable this feature:
  • Control Panel
  • Sounds
  • Select the Communications tab > select "Do nothing".



Thanks to Erip for this tip.
