Windows – Routing Applications sound to different sound device? (Windows)


Anyone know how I can set for an application to output its audio to a specific device in Windows? I'm dealing with applications where it's not possible to go into their settings and choose which output device you want to use.

It looks like Windows 10 (Build 1803) has a native solution.

  1. Go into Windows Settings > System > Sound (Figure 1)
  2. Towards the bottom below the Section "Input, you will see a section labeled "Other Sound options". Select App volume and device preferences (Figure 2)
  3. The Top Section controls the default sound settings, while the Bottom section allows for individual sound control.
