Inspiron 24-5459, HDMI in audio colliding with PC output

Hello, recently i bought a Nintendo Switch but I connected it through it's HDMI into my computer's HDMI in, but when i change the monitor screens (pressing the button above the power button) it changes to the switch's screen and that's what i want, but if i'm on a call on the computer, i can still be heard, but it deafens the audio of the computer and I've tried going through the audio manager to default the headphones I use but nothing works. Is there a way to listen to both the computer and HDMI channel at the same time through my monitor? thanks in advance.

Simple answer is NO.

Since the Nintendo Switch provides Audio and Video via it's HDMI-Output ... when you switch Inspiron AiO 24 to "HDMI Input Mode" that's what you get ... the Nintendo Switch's audio and video.

You do know that LCD HDTV's are dirt cheap these days, right?
