    Ok. First off I wasn't sure where to put this thread at in this forum so I just landed it here, so sorry if I inconvience anyone at all. With that said let me get to it.

    I have a Dell Dimension 4500 (Win Xp) so when I want to plug in my headphones it is very annoying due to the flap and not being able to see the headphone jack. So is there a possibility of having a hot key that will disable or enable the headphones when I want to use them or not without ever unplugging them?

    Well I use my speakers most of the time but when I want to use my headphones I don't want to have to try to find the jack all the time which again is annoying.

    Actually, I'm running headphones off my speaker jack--front panel jacks don't work--and they do fine there.

    Headphone jacks usually disable the speaker jacks when anything's plugged in there--on-off switches and volume control probably won't help...
