Is this the best way to switch between headphones and speakers?

I've been using auto hotkey with the following script

Insert::
Run, mmsys.cpl
WinWait,Sound
ControlSend,SysListView321,{Down}
ControlClick,&Set Default
ControlClick,OK
return

Break::
Run, mmsys.cpl
WinWait,Sound
ControlSend,SysListView321,{Down 3}
ControlClick,&Set Default
ControlClick,OK
return



Is this the best way to this? Is there a program that also does this. Autohotkey is fine but i often have to press the hotkey like 3 or 4 times before it switches. The sound menu will always pop up but sometime it wont change the audio output. I have to press it a few times.

Any other ways to do this?

Werm mate some more system specs would have been helpful System Info - See Your System Specs

But anyway I don't know if this might be what you are after now just as precaution with all this freeware best save it to downloads scan it with the security you have then backup your registry (always a good idea after a new installation and before you tweak anything) Registry - Backup and Restore


If all clear with the scan - run it
