Windows 7: Accidentally disabled my speakers

Accidentally disabled my speakers

I was trying to adjust some of my sound settings and I disabled both my headset sound and my external speakers. Now when I pull up my sound menu "playback devices" neither the headsets nor speakers are there.

They were both visible/working before I disabled them. Where can I go to enable them again?

Hello, Dbivian, welcome to the Seven Forums.

Open Playback Devices, right click anywhere in the Select a playback device-area and check the option Show Disabled Devices.
