sample rate issue

When using Steinberg programs, the MR816 changes sample rates as it should. I can switch from project to project and the sample rate will be set correctly.

My issue is if I exit Nuendo or Wavelab at a sample rate other than 44.1, other programs on my machine will not play audio until I open the MR Editor interface and set the sample rate to 44.1. This includes any audio or video streaming website. This is a newer behavior for my system. Does anyone know why I have to set the sample rate manually now? Is there a way to let windows set the sample rate depending on what needs to be played?
