TurboTax did not default to Standard Rideshare Driver Mileage Deduction although it is greater than Actual Expenses (in prior years it chose the best option)

Has me enter all information (miles driven and actual expenses) as has done in the past, but then automatically chose Actual Expense deduction with no option to choose Standard (or reply that it chose Standard as greater than Actual, or vece versa, as has done in prior years).

You do not get to switch from Standard to Actual from year to year. If you start with actual, you have to stay with actual regardless of which has a higher benefit.
