How to connect a Soundbar with a Laptop through HDMI?

Just plug in HDMI.
Route the sound to HDMI in Win 11. You will get sound.
I dunno where the display image will go though. But you can duplicate the screen image I believe

I think ARC audio is for going the reverse direction from a TV that receives an over-the-air or streaming signal to the sound system.
Audio from an HDMI source goes from the source to the sound system as part of the HDMI video signal.

Does not the laptop act as an HDMI video/audio source?
