Hey, I was trying to get Skype to play through my headphones and Spotify to play through my speakers. I have tried everything, using realtek manager to set the headphones as "Headphones" and my speakers as "Front Speaker Out".

I downloaded the trial CheVolume, which looks pretty useful however in my sound setting I only ever have "Speakers" I never have Headphones.. is this a problem and how do I fix it?

Current setup with both headphones and speakers plugged in:

Setup with only speakers plugged in:

Any help would be really appreciated thanks!

Windows only allows one default audio playback device. Thus everything will come through whatever is the default device. Unless you can possibly find a 3rd party program that will route things differently you will have to live with the Windows limitation.
