Sound won't play through headphones while using skype

I'm using windows 7 and skype 5.10.
Whenever skype plays a notification or I'm in a call with somebody, audio from other sources will only play through my speakers. I've tried the solutions from
http://community.skype.com/t5/Windows/Program-glitch-switches-to-speakers-while-using-headphones/td-...
and
http://community.skype.com/t5/Garage/Audio-goes-to-internal-speakers-when-using-headset-when-audio/m...
but neither work.
Any help would be appreciated.

Right click on the volume button on the taskbar and click playback devices, disable the speakers device, then by default, it should use the headphones device

Re: Sound won't play through headphones while using skype

I found the fix for this with your sound icon on taskbar right click and

1: choose playback device

2: where you see speakers/heaphone, then beneathe that comunnications headphone right click on comunnications headphone and choose disable device.

 

this is a pain dont know why microsoft didnt program it to stay that way for all the split output sound chips

it was ok on earlier version 5 of skype. now it should look like this after
