Windows 7: Speakers to Headphones Shortcut

Speakers to Headphones Shortcut

I don't know if what I want is possible. Or what my options are. So that's why I'm here.

I have logitech USB headphones. and a set of logitech speakers. and I use them both regularly. In fact so regularly, that I am tiring of right clicking the speaker icon on my taskbar, going to playback devices, setting one as default, and hitting ok.

Is there a way to make more of a toggle switch? Like a one button press. Either icon for my desktop, toolbar for my taskbar, script that I can program into my G15 keyboard?

I'm open to all ideas.

Hello Static,

It's not a toggle switch, but this shortcut below to open Sounds directly to the Playback tab may make it easier for you to do this. You can pin it to the taskbar or move where you like for easy use if the shortcut.
