    Default Odd microphone behavior Windows 8.1

    Laptop running Windows 8.1 - the built in microphone works fine when using the desktop Skype app, but does not work at all when using the Metro Skype app. Two microphone options show up in the Metro app, and I've tried them both.

    Anyone know how I can fix this?

    See if any of the suggestions from http://community.skype.com/t5/Modern...8/td-p/1309332 Work.

    Ok, found a partial fix on there - disabled one of the two microphone options showing.

    Still, the voice is legible only for the first few seconds, so there is something wrong with the drivers as well probably, as it was fine when Windows 7 was installed.

    Got it fixed. Reinstalled drivers, and the problem of the microphone only picking up voice for a couple of seconds is now gone.

    Thanks for the link Wainuitech
