    Automatically switch from headphones to speakers

    In windows 7, when headphones were plugged into the jack on the front of the machine it would automatically switch to the headphones and mute the speakers. If you unplugged them, it would enable the speakers. How would I go about enabling this on Windows 10?

    What brand computer? I have Win10 on an older Dell Inspiron 580 with speakers plugged into the rear panel and whenever I plug headphones into the front jack it automatically disables the rear jack. It really depends a lot on the motherboard features.

    This is a computer we put together - different manufacturers. I forget the brand. Anyway it worked fine before the update. There is a large driver packaged released from Via http://fichiers.touslesdrivers.com/4...io_11.1000.zip
    that I'm going to try. If anyone has any ideas let me know.
