    Headphones/Earphones Not Showing Up On Playback Devices


    I'm running on Windows 10 Home and my earphones work but they don't show up in playback devices (Right click sound and select playback devices) I'm not really sure how to get them back. It doesn't really matter with my earphones but my headphones don't work at all when I plug them in and I'm not sure if it not showing up in the playback devices will change anything (So I can set it to default device?)
    Also, my headphones used to work but then it started not to work every once and a while and the sound would come out of the speaker.
    It would be appreciated if someone could help.
