How to set the default output?

Hello I am having issues with my sound output it keeps changing every time I reboot my machine. and I have to set it to the correct output. Is there anyway to set it to a default settings so it will not change on restart. Thanks so much

I am using Ubuntu mate 20.04

You might want to try this:

or pactl if you're into command line stuff.

Using pactl, You will need to add something like pactl set-default-sink alsa_output.yourdesiredoutput.blabla as a startup command.
Use pactl list/pactl list sinks to find out the correct name.

Hope this helps.

Thanks for the help, but I don't understand why this is not working out of the box, seems to me this is something that should work correctly. I never had problems like this with Mate. I have it on other machines and it works correctly...... So what has changed?

I'll solve this tomorrow. I have this problem too. I've been putting it off.
