Windows driver is automatic. You should be able switch. Just try it. Go to properties and uninstall from there.Ok, so if I uninstall the realtek drivers, will I still be able to easily switch between headphones and speakers?
Where do I get the Microsoft drivers?
I did not install that program or app in my Auros B550M Pro so it is using Windows driver. I can plug and unplug both speaker and headphones at any time without restart and they work. True, though, they have to be plugged in before starting games.I have a Gigabyte x570 Aorus Elite WiFi with realtek audio. I can switch between them in Windows control panel and they work with both plugged in.
Note: it took a restart when I plugged both in before they showed up as active devices in the audio console and sound control panel. The 'active detection' doesn't always work properly and the device stays in unplugged mode till you restart. Once restarted though I could unplug and replug and it would work okay.
Also of note, programs sometimes have their own sound settings that can bind to a specific audio device eg. Discord etc. so if they're not set to 'system default' then they'll keep playing on the device you started the program with. Some games I know won't switch audio if you change default device half-way through playing until you restart the game.
