Windows 7: Different Default Devices for Different Users

Different Default Devices for Different Users


Thanks for having such a great forum. I'm trying to find a way to have different default playback devices for different user accounts? Like, have "realtek" as the default playback for user A but when you switch to user B it's a USB headset as the default. This is something I am able to do with no problem in XP but I can't seem to get it to work in Windows 7. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

From what I can tell, power options and default playback are universal, so if you change it, it changes it for everyone.
