Way to play PC Audio through the Rift's Headphones (in game/app)?

I know you can do the opposite (e.g.) play Rift audio through the computer's speakers (which I often do), but I was wondering if there was a way to play (i.e. mix) the computer's audio through the rift headphones.  I know if I made the Rift Audio the default in Windows that would probably work, but i don't want it to be the default, and then Rift audio would not come out of the speakers. 

Is there any way to accomplish this?  Or is it only possible one way or the other at one time?

Thanks!

    I use 'Audio Output Switcher'. Have for a lot of years. Greatly simplifies switching audio sources. Windows has always been weak with audio management IMO.

    Thank, jayhawk ... I will check that out.  Yeah, I agree ... I am a big fan of Windows overall, but you are right ... the audio management could be a little more robust.  Not horrible, but definitely room for improvement.  It seems to have a problem remembering default device settings too.

    Is this the one you are talking about:  https://audioswit.ch/er

    Also, I assume what I want to do is otherwise not possible, correct?
