So I'm using the Skype app in Windows 8.1 and my wife stepped away from her computer. Her TV is on and whatever show is on turned to a loud car chase. I could just mute my whole computer, but I'd like to be able to hear what's playing on my computer in the meantime.
In Skype for Desktop there are Audio Settings that, while inconveniently placed, allow me to control the volume of Skype.
In the Skype app, if I swipe to show the available options, the only options I'm given are for notifications, setting her as a favorite contact, viewing her profile, blocking her, and removing her from my contacts.
If I go to the settings for the application, I'm given the option to select the default devices for audio and video, but there's nothing about volume.
I've been looking through the Skype forums, and it seems like there are no ways to control the volume of the call in the Skype App itself. So if that's true, is there some way I can control the volume of the Skype App outside of it's built-in settings?
