This bug has been raging on for 2 months now - lowering the sound through the Netflix app wouldn't work, the volume would stay at 100%. Only lowering windows master volume helps.

Same thing happens on my other pc. Has anyone experienced the same bug and found a solution? Thanks!

I solved this issue by disabling "Exclusive Mode" for the playback device.

Step by step:

  1. Right click on the taskbar volume icon
  2. playback devices
  3. right click on your default audio device
  4. properties
  5. Advanced Tab
  6. uncheck "Allow applications to take exclusive control of this device"
  7. Apply

    Thank you! I also had to restart Netflix after having done this for it to work. – Clox Oct 9 '17 at 6:29
