Windows 10: Can't Split Audio Devices.

    Can't Split Audio Devices.


    Hi,

    I'm using Windows 10 and I have some problems with my audio devices. I wan't to split my speakers inside up from my headset. But when I go to playback devices only "Speakers" and "Realtek Digital Output" appears. I've searched a lot and some websites propose some kind of programs like CheVolume but when I open this, my headset still doesn't appear. The strange thing is that when I plug in my headset in the playback devices menu it says that "Speakers" is playing. Here is a screenshot of my playback menu:

    Hi Heroii. Welcome to the Tenforums @Heroii

    Since you are running RealTek I would look for the Realtek Audio Manager in your systray, (lower right, maybe hidden).

    You should see your headset there. If not check settings / options within the Audio Manager. There was a previous thread where you had to set it to analog. Of course just to clarify, this was to get headset recognized (speakers with Mic) and not just Headphones (speakers).

    I would start my investigation there.

    Hi Ken,

    Already Thanks for your quick respond. But when I open my systray only the normal things show up. I don't see something like a headset icon, if it could be hidden how can I make it to show me it's there? Here's a screenhot from systray:

    Sorry missed this response. What you are looking for is the RealTek Audio Manager. I recognize a number of those icons. I would cursor over each. On one of my devices it looks like a speaker, not the windows speaker.

    Maybe your does not have this. I would check you all "apps". A long shot but might not be starting.

    Are any of those hidden icons related to sound?
