Windows 7: How do I get sounds to be played back through my earphones?

How do I get sounds to be played back through my earphones?

I would like to know how I can get all of the sounds on my HP Compaq laptop to be played back through my earphones and not the built-in speakers.
Windows Media Player for instance works fine when I start it up after plugging in the earphones, but apps like Mozilla Fire Fox uses the HP built-in speakers.

This is what the sound mixer for the built-in speakers look like when I've got the earphones plugged in:

And the earphones:

How do I get the other apps on the built-in speakers' mixer to be played by the earphones?

also when i use skype, i use headphones as a default communication device, and speakers as a default device, so i can listen to music with speakers, and talk using the headphones.

I tried that, but the problem is that it doesn't set the headphones as the default device then, it still has the built-in speakers as the defaults.
