    Having to manually switch from speakers to headphones in settings!

    Since the upgrade I have found an annoying problem ( probably driver related ). When I plug anything in the cases front Audio Jack, it does not switch automatically. I have to keep manually changing where audio comes out through using "play back devices" settings. Was wondering if anyone else has had this problem? Any help would be awesome, the audio device is VIA HD 2021! I have also disabled the audio enhancements as it shows here to be causing some sort of other problem but that does not solve it! This problem also did not happen in Preview builds and I have clean installed W10 .

    I know this is an old post, but maybe it will still help you, and others.
    Go to audio settings, in control panel. Find advance audio settings, click on jack information, and uncheck "Enable auto popup dialog, when device has been plugged in. Hope this solves your problem., it did mine. Regards!
