Windows 7 64Bit, Speakers Audible or Mute when Headphones in use.

Seen some posts here in Sound & Audio section regarding this topic.

What is the Universal Windows 7 method to do this ^(see title)^ regardless of hardware or drivers used?

Edit: Looking for default Windows method to control this function. (Registry or other)

The default on most is mute the speakers when headset is plugged in. Some sound hardware, such as Realtek, have options to mute the speakers when a headset is plugged in or not to mute the speakers.

I assume this is your question.

Yes. true. Alas I knew that, that's why I was asking if anybody knew what the alternative is to the modern default behaviour, hence the question remains:

Right so the "function" is normally an adjustable option when one has the specific hardware's software installed to control how it behaves.

However windows and the registry control should be able to do the same "function" if we are able to implement it our self.

By "default" I am extrapolating drivers only, thus function without software.

...add to that regardless of control software as well.

Anyone have an answer on this?

When i plug my headphones into the front panel creative console changes from 5.1 to headphones but it doesn't mute my speakers and auto mute speakers option is checked. Is this because speakers are through optical to a logitech z5500? Also is optical out the best way to send sound to the z5500's?
