I was in sound settings today, and this setting was selected







I have no recollection of setting it to this. I know for a fact from working on other computers, the default is set to "Reduce the volume of other sounds by 80%"


Is it possible this setting changed on it's own? maybe I did it by mistake, im just curious

Hi theo19 :)

I'm not aware of this issue, but these two threads on SuperUser could provide part of the answer.


My guess is that a third-party program could have caused this, or even yourself without even knowing: by checking or setting a random option that also affected this one. I suggest you to set it back to default (80% like you say), and then wait a few days and see if it changes back to "Do Nothing".
