How to Separate Speaker and Headphone Audio

HP Recommended
HP Pavilion 15t-touch
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

The problem that i have with my laptop is that I never want to use the speakers on my laptop because I always use headphones so I want to disable the speakers on the laptop without disabling the headphones. The headphones that I am trying to use for this are not Bluetooth so you have to plug them into the audio jack. 

The first thing I tried was going to "Control Panel/Hardware and Sound/Manage Audio Devices", right clicking on "Speaker/Headphone", and clicking disable.


This however did not work because it says "Speaker/Headphone" so it disabled the headphones as well.

I read an article online that said that you could separate the Speaker and Headphone audios if you used Realtek HD Audio Manager but I cannot find this application on my computer. I tried updating my audio driver but I still cannot find the Realtek HD Audio Manager.

How should I separate the Speaker and Headphone audio or disable the laptop speaker's audio without disabling the audio jack?

Go to above link and under windows section install proper application which matches with your system configuration. But if u install realtek audio manager the bang and olufsen audio won't work.
