    Recently I bought a new notebook which has system speakers, audio jack and USB plugins.

    When I start now a movie (with well known VLC videoplayer) then I can hear to the audio from the built-in speakers as well as with a headset plugged to the audio jack. Fine.

    Now I have got a new USB headset.

    When I plug it into on of the USB plugin and start the movie then the audio comes still out of the speakers and NOT from the USB headset.

    How EXACTLY can I automatically disable system speakers and enable USB headset when I plugin the USB headset?

    Go to Control Panel>>>Sound>>> right-click and disable speakers and enable your USB headset (an icon for your USB headset should be there) like mine on the pic below.

    headset.
