Rift CV1 automatically changes Windows default audio device

Every time I put on the hmd the windows default audio device changes to Rift headphones. I have tried playing with different settings, including Advanced sound options in Windows sound settings to no avail. I thought Google would be my friend but all I could find was other people with this problem over the last few years with no answers.

I still have not been able to figure out a solution to this problem and its starting to get annoying having to switch my default audio device back after using the Oculus.

You can use the free Oculus Tray Tool app yo tell your PC when and when not to switch the audio device.  Also had a handful of other handy features  :]

I know it can switch the default device to the rift but does it have a setting to automatically switch audio back?

Yes, there is a setting in OTT that allows you to revert back to pc speakers after you stop oculus from running.
