Using front and back audio jack


Is there a way to use both front and back audio jack at the same time?

I have a speaker plugged at the back but when I plug my headphones in the front, It turn off the speaker. 

I don't want to use them at the same time, but I want to be able to switch from one another without having to unplug my headphones all the time.

Re: Using front and back audio jack

That is the default mode of operation.  Some audio control programs have an option to allow both at the same time.

You failed to include your PC model number, but check to see if you have an audio control program.
