    Playback Devices/Headphones and Speakers Auto Switching?

    Is there a way to set speakers and headphones to switch back and forth automatically like Windows7 did? See also: plug my headphones in...headphones work. Unplug my headphones...speakers work...without having to right click the speaker and manually set what I'm using every time.

    I'm not sure how it works with 3.5mm headphone jacks, but with USB headsets go to Control Panel > Sounds > Playback tab and with the headphones plugged in select them and then set them as the default playback device (click 'Set Default' button).

    If they are the default playback device, when they are plugged in sound will come through them, when they are unplugged the sound will come through the normal speakers.
