My headset is plugged in, but sound still comes from the computer speakers instead of my USB headset. How do I make the sound only come out of my headset so it doesn't disturb others around me.

Change to a usb 2.0 port instead of a 3.0 if that the issue. If you right-click on your audio icon in the system tray and click Playback devices, can you see more than one device? Changing this may make the sound come out of the speaker you're expecting, as you can disable unused ones.

Peace.

VJ– only one device is visible with the headset icon, and it is not my USB device. Thank you for your reply
