    I have a dumb question for you guys. I have a 2014 Mac Mini and every time I reboot into/or Windows 10 it the sound keeps coming out from the internal speakers until I unplug the headphones and replug them in. I want the sound to come though the earphones and not the internal speakers.

    I've gone though the sound control panel and told that I want the headphones to be the default, but this didn't fix the issue. I also have a 2012 Mac Mini and it doesn't have this problem.

    Questions: How can I fix it so the sound only goes to the headphones and not the internal speakers. Do you think there is a problem with my Mac Mini, on the Mac OS side it doesn't do this. :/

    Could be the audio drivers, if your Windows 10 install does not detect that there are headphones plugged in during startup then that might be a driver issue. Maybe try reinstalling your audio drivers.

    This is going to show you how new I am to Windows 10, do I do that with the Boot Camp drivers manually, or can I re-run the BootCamp drivers install again?

    If you press Command+X (WinKey+X) a menu will show up near the start menu. select Programs and Features from the top of the menu and then find the Audio driver package and uninstall it. It should be called something like Cirrus Audio or Realtek Audio or similar. If not then press Command+X and instead open device manager and navigate to your audio device to find out the manufacturer (Not Intel HD Audio, ignore that one). Once you are sure that you have uninstalled the driver, navigate to the place where your Bootcamp drivers are kept and find the driver that corresponds to the one you uninstalled and reinstall that driver.
