Audio balance is resetted when Audacity is launched

Hi, I’m using Audacity 2.2.2 on Windows 10 and every time I start it up, the sound balance gets resetted.
Is there a way to stop it?

The short answer is no. Audacity does not control the sound balance of the sound card. If, as you state, the sound card is resetting its balance when Audacity connects, then that’s something that your sound card is doing, not something that Audacity is telling it to do. You would need to modify the sound card driver to change the behaviour.

The longer answer is, why do you need the sound card to be not balanced?

There is an issue with either my headphone or the connector in which the sound is louder on the left side, so I have to use the sound balance to fix it.
I can adjust it every time I launch the app, even though it’s annoying.

Are you able to test your headphones with a different device (such as a CD player or MP3 player)?
If the problem occurs with other devices, it could be due to dirt / corrosion on the jack plug (which you may be able to clean adequately with alcohol or “contact cleaner” spray), or it could be time to get a new pair of headphones.
