    So upon updating my PC, my headphones no longer show as a playback device in sound. No clue what to do, as when I plug them in, the sound still plays from my laptop speakers, unless I restart my PC with the headphones plugged in, when sound only plays from the headphones and the speakers disable themselves.

    UPDATE:
    So it turns out that they do switch, but I have to wait around a minute after unplugging headphones for the speakers to start, and the headphones are using the speaker playback device when they used to use their own, just done the windows april update, anyone know what's up?
