    Have you had a look at the Windows Volume Mixer in the system tray? I recently had a Windows update set certain apps volume to zero.
    Here's my Volume Mixer. The audio is set to 8% because that's about as high as I can go without my headphones becoming too loud.

    And here's how the Realtek HD Audio Manager looks before and after plugging in my headphones:

    Timobkg, in Windows what is your default playback device set to. Is it Headphones or Speakers?

    Another Realtek HD Audio driver has appeared on the MUC today. Version 6.0.1.8005 64-bit only.

    Obviously older than build 8010 but I'm going to give them a try anyway.

    Speakers. I don't have Headphones as a playback device option, I only have Speakers and the digital options (2 Realtek Digital Outputs, and 4 Digital Display Audios). When I plug in my headphones, the audio output goes through the Speakers playback device.

    I don't know if this was always the case for my motherboard (Asus Z170-A) or if I used to have a separate Headphone device and it was removed in a driver update.

    That's a pain, I was going to suggest you set the headphones as default playback device then when you unplugged them the speakers would take over.
    I can't really suggest anything because apart from my speakers I use a USB headset which uses it's own driver.

    As usual, let me know if it's worth updating.

    maybe Like DooGie has you may have to buy yourself a USB headset that has its own set of drivers that way you bypass the realtek audio completely, that may be another option for you as well.

    Electronically speaking, only way a sound card/chip can tell if headphones or speakers are plugged in is by impedance, Low impedance (Ohm) headphones are usually interpreted as speakers/amplifier.

    To me they sound the same as build 8004 but a lot better than 8010. Since I've installed 8005 I'll keep them on
