Switch audio to built-in when inserting headphone jack [X1 Yoga 2nd]

2017-12-19, 21:33 PM

Hi all,


I noticed an issue with my Lenovo X1 Yoga 2nd that I didn't have with my older laptop.

My monitor is connected through HDMI and has speakers.

But sometimes I want to connect headphones to listen using them but the system doesn't switch to the laptop audio adapter automatically based on the trigger of inserting the headphone jack.

It would be much more convinient if it did rather than needing to open Playback devices everytime to switch back and forth. My older laptop with Realtek adapter did that. I'm not sure if it's something that Windows did or the Audio driver did.


Any ideas how can I get it to switch automatically?
