This is the annoying pop-up

Why I’m calling this problem as annoying because when you plug in your headphones/earphones via the headphone jack on the PC/laptop, then a pop-up gets displayed automatically on the lower right corner of the screen asking you ‘Which Device Did You Plug-In?’. You think that you can ignore that pop-up but ignoring it only doesn’t work as the sound will still be played via your laptop/PC speakers instead of your headphones/earphones or if you select the appropriate device then still the sound will not be played in the earphones. There is only one way to play music on your headphones is that you click every time on the pop-up.

‘But wait, why to do so if you have got the easiest step to disable this pop-up for always?’

If you’re one among those users then you must follow the few steps given below to solve this annoying problem.
