Windows 7: Forcibly prevent skype from adjusting microphone volume?

04 Apr 2016   #1

Windows 7 Ultimate x64
Forcibly prevent skype from adjusting microphone volume?

I want to use gpedit or something to prevent my mic volume from changing at all (I want it forced 25% no matter what)

but NO Matter What I do. Skype keeps changing it all over the place! and I already disabled "automatically adjust microphone volume" in the option

But it doesnt do anything.. It keeps changing anyways.

Can I use gpedit and set a policy that prevents any program at all from changing the microphone volume?

Nothing seems to work.. I end up dragging the slider to 25% constantly fighting with it to keep the volume from getting too loud or quiet!!

note this only happens while IN a call.

Solved... By reverting to an older version of skype.. No more microphone changes! (skype 6.3)

Anyone else with this problem probably should try that as well.
