I disagree ... the default devices should be those used by Windows for system sounds.    Anything else should NOT be set as default especially if its a radio soundcard, whether an internal to the rig, or external USB card.

The reason is WIndows will use the default for any other application along with what you're currently using.   Such as Windows notifications, errors from an anti-virus, soundtrack from whatever video is being watched.

I've heard anecdotal stories about hearing a porn soundtrack, as well as the soundtrack to Frozen !!

I disagree.  The default Windows Playback and Recording devices should be those needed by the current app in use.

Right click the speaker at the end of the Windows 10 task-bar and select "Open Sound settings".  Select the needed Sound "Output" and "Input devices form the pull-down lists.  Windows 10 automatically makes these the defaults.

Right click the speaker at the end of the Windows 10 task-bar and select "Open Sound settings".  Select "Open Volume mixer".  The "Volume Mixer" for the above selected "Output" device should appear.  Mute all inputs not needed.  The app input will not appear until the first time that it is present, for example; "WSJT-X v2.1.0 by K1JT".
