How to use headphones while laptop plugged to HDMI

[Questions] I want to be able to use my own speakers while watching a film, connected to the laptops speaker output port but it just plays through the speakers on the TV through the HDMI. How do I get it to play through the headphone instead of HDMI? im using windows 7. Thanks.

[Answer] You need to change the output device. Right click on the Speaker icon and choose Playback Devices. You should be able to choose between HDMI audio and speaker audio.
