Audio monitoring intermittent

Audacity fails to play audio thru external headphones . . . sometimes. I can sometimes hear audio after a restart of my MacBook air (2022); sometimes not. Sometimes Audacity doesn’t have external headphones as an audio setup option, sometimes not. Can’t decide whether it’s a mac problem or an audacity problem. Issue happens with no change to mac settings, so assume it’s an Audacity quirk.

I am working on a windows PC but have the same observations. My observation: Once Audacitiy is running, it will never recognize the plug in of an audio device. So I have to plug in my USB headset before I start Audacity. Or, the other way round, I have to close Audacity and start it again before I can use my already plugged USB audio device.
