I don't have "Realtek Audio Manager" but I have "Realtek Audio Console". I don't see anything in there that can help me thoughDo you have something like "Realtek Audio Manager" installed? I've had a similar issue (it won't swap over unless i press a specific text prompt that pops up in notifications), and I think there may be some settings that you can fiddle with to see if it changes anything. If you do have it, open it up and click the little gear icon near the box in the bottom left-ish, that opened some settings for me which seemed to recreate the issue you have (specifically, ticking the top one).
