Hi, Nino. Try one of the following to keep Windows from reducing volume during Skype calls.


Windows 10 Automatically Reduces System Volume for Games & PC Calls



While you are using your PC to place or receive calls or while you are playing games which use PC calls feature, Windows automatically reduces the system volume without even asking you.


Actually its a new feature which was introduced in Windows 7 which can be disabled using the following simple steps:


1. Open "Sound" applet from Control Panel.

Or right-click on Speaker icon present in system tray and select "Playback devices" or "Recording devices" or "Sounds" option.


2. Now go to "Communications" tab and check the option "Do nothing" and Apply it.


3. That's it. Now Windows will no longer reduce the system volume.


Second option:


Press JAWS key plus SPACE BAR, then the letter D as in dog. If JAWS says Ducking other audio, this was not the problem. Repeat the steps,


Press JAWS key plus SPACE BAR, then the letter D as in dog.


JAWS should say, Do not duck other audio.


This is where the setting should stay in order that JAWS does not reduce system volume.
