whats up?

so I just bought a new monitor, and im using hdmi and it has internal speakers. however, I also have external speakers, but I do not like to turn that whole setup on unless im playing games or editing. is there a shortcut I can create on my desktop that when clicked sets "hdmi" to default or "external" to default?
