There are several ways to solve this problem, but the easiest way is through the speaker icon found in the lower right corner of the taskbar. Click with the left mouse button on the icon so that the volume control appears. Then click on the top right arrow to open the list of available playback devices. Select the desired device and Windows will immediately send the audio signal to it.
