Hi tim413, if you right click the speaker icon on the right of the taskbar and select playback devices you will see the speakers and the headphones. you should be able to set the defaults there by clicking on the speakers or headphones and clicking set default.
this is what you should see.

thats a tricky one i havent seen that before, unfortunately im on the lappy now and have a different sound card ,so i cant get into the realtek audio settings .
can you go to control panel and select realtek hd audio manager and see if there is setting in there .
hopefully someone else can pitch in with some ideas. i will pm someone who may know a bit more about this,

What happens when you select "The default communication device" rather than "All devices currently playing sound"?

I've just checked my Realtek Audio Manager, see below.
