Windows 7: Renaming Devices in Windows Sound Control Panel

Renaming Devices in Windows Sound Control Panel

If I rename audio devices by the method indicated below, will there be any negative repercussions? I would assume that programs don't use those names to identify devices, but I want to double check.

I've never tried it (or needed to). Give it a try and if doesn't work you can always change it back.

Welcome to the windows 7 forums.

My question is Why is it necessary to rename audio devices?

Who sees it but you when you look at the properties???

The less you mess with things, the better they operate...
