    From MS:

    After installing this update on machines that have multiple audio devices, applications that provide advanced options for internal or external audio output devices may stop working unexpectedly. This issue occurs for users that select an audio output device different from the “Default Audio Device”. Examples of applications that may stop working include:

    - Windows Media Player
    - Realtek HD Audio Manager
    - Sound Blaster Control Panel

    As a temporary solution, select the “Default Audio Device” in the options provided by the application; please refer to the application’s user manual for details.

    For example, to set the Default Audio Device in Windows Media Player:

    1. Open Windows Media Player > Tools > Options > Devices.
    2. Select the device and choose Properties.
    3. On the next dialog, from the drop-down menu under Select the Audio Device, choose Default Audio Device from the list.
    You can then send audio from the application to the audio device you want in the per-application audio settings found under Settings > System > Sound > App Volume and device preferences.

    Microsoft is working on a resolution and estimates a solution will be available in late March 2019.

    Well that sucks, I use both Realtek Audio HD and USB Audio (headset), way to screw things up, Microsoft. I'll be putting off this update as long as I can.
