Windows 7: Changing Playback Device

Changing Playback Device

The typical way to change a playback device is by going into "Control Panel" -> "Sound" -> "Playback", and from there select your desire playback device.

I would like to know if there's a way that I could make this simpler such as writing a simple command line script or some sort because I have multiple audio outputs on my computer.

I tried to search in this forum with a search string "playback device" and no luck, any help would be appreciated.

Thanks,

- dc

If you have the small speaker on the lower left hand side of the screen then try right clicking and select "Playback Devices". This will take you to an easy way to do what ever you want with the options you have available on your system.

Right..., that's what I am doing right now.

I am just curious if there's something simpler to change the playback device in a single click.

It's just simpler than teaching my wife to go thru these steps.
