Audio jack 3.5 switching headphones and internal speakers possible?

my laptop has one jack 3.5 output connector, sometimes i am using headphones and sometimes laptop internal speakers. I am afraid of the wear of the jack connector connection to the motherboard and also it is bothering to always manualy plug the connector. Is there any way to keep headphones connector plugged and do the simple switching (internal speakers/headphones)? (this is M$ Windows).

I was also thinking if there can be a small device that has a switch button and jack connectors that can be used for this purpose, but possibly that is not how it can be done: https://www.amazon.com/3-5mm-switch/s?k=%223+5mm%22+switch

Thank you for the input. Thanks to yours mentioned bluetooth i got also an idea of USB sound card. I know i was looking for some and these may not produce good audio quality. :-S
But it may solve issue described in this thread

Of course, bluetooth setup could bypass such a tricky method, but a bit annoying with threatening electromagnetic wave, etc.

You should destroy the current plug assembly inside and wire again.
Because headphone jack triggers the physical switch inside the jack hole, and then the switch turns off the internal speaker while accepting signal from the headphone wire.
