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?
