Teamviewer is using your Microphone, volume dropped 80% as result.

We love using teamviewer but have a strange problem.

When connecting to a machine for some reason my microphone activates and the volume is dropped for 80%. In windows Settings-> Audio->privacy settings microphone i can see Teamviewer 14 is using my mic and in the systemtray there is a icon showing also stating teamviewer is using my mic. as a result my audio is lowered to 80%, so anything im listening to on youtube or spotify is suddenly reduced to 20% audio level, but there is no way to raise this again anywhere, only thing i can do is turn off everything from teamviewer and the problem is gone.

How do i keep teamviewer from using my mic and lowering the audio volume?

Hello Icthelp,

the behaviour you are describing is not TV specfic, it's more a general Windows setting.

Please open the "Communications" tab in "Sound Control Panel" dialog to change the general behavior.

How to get it under Windows 10?
Windows Settings / System / Sound / Sound Control Panel (Right side)
