    With my current setup I have 2 playback devices that I constantly use on my computer. Currently to switch between devices I have to go to control panel, sound, and then change the playback device. I am hoping to find a way to make 2 shortcuts on my desktop to change my playback devices. One shortcut for each of my devices, where i can open the shortcut and the default device will be changed. I am using Windows 7 Ultimate.

    Any help or suggestions will be appreciated.

    Thanks Robes

    An easy way to switch is click the volume icon in the taskbar.
    Click mixer.
    Under the speaker selection is a drop down menu.
    Click that and select your output device.

    Thanks, i know i can change it that way, but I am trying to make shortcuts instead. I have a keyboard with programmable keys and would like to set a key for each of my devices.

    On my keyboard, I was able to edit and assign shortcuts in its properties. I'm not sure if this method will work on yours, but that's what worked for mine computer.

    I can assign shortcuts in the logitech software that came with my keyboard. I do not know how to assign speakers to these shortcuts.
