Reviving...

Hi there! Sorry to bother but you did something that is great and just what I need!
It is working the shortcut to open de "Sound Options", with the Windows + S.
Would you do a change for me? My sound outputs are differente and the shortcuts to auto change the sound output does not work!!!

So, can I take a printscreen?

Regards and thanks a lot!

The thread looks dead, but I can't help but post.
First of all, thanks for the great program - it really saves me a lot of time, and I like the icon
I'd like to request two new features - customizable hotkeys, and command line support - for example, for a batch that would launch Skype and switch sound output to my headset at the same time. I also would like to use ctrl+/ and ctrl+* to switch audio devices in other cases, because alt+1 and alt+2 interfere with my WoW keybinds.

Added a BT headset for Google Voice

Not sure if this is being monitored any longer, but here goes. If there's a newer version out there, please let me know.

I'd like send phone calls to my wireless BT headset, but keep the remainder of sound to system speakers (when not on a call). The problem may be that Win7 categoriezes the BT as "speakers" and the system speakers as "speakers & headphones"

Installed the app, but it toggles from BT to speakers, but not back.

It's a great simple tool. Let me know your thoughts.

Added a BT headset for Google Voice - DISREGARD

Sorry folks. I dug a little deeper into the sound manager and found the settings to send calls to headset.

Now if I could only figure out how to delete the prior post...

Thanks for the sound switch. Other than my AV (Kaspersky 2012) complaining like hell about it (stated it was a Trojan virus) it worked great!
