Headphones issues

Hello,
I bought new headphones and I have problem.
I would like to hear Skype through my headphones and all other sound through speakers.
My computer also recognizes my headphones as speakers so its all sounds on headphones or all sounds on speakers.

Its all or nothing on all PC's I've seen. When you plug in the headset the normal operation is to mute the speakers. Some systems have the ability to not mute the speakers when a headset is plugged in. But, Windows will only allow one default audio playback device, thus you can't have two different sound streams at the same time.

There many be some 3rd party app that will do this, but I'm not aware of any.
