Windows 10: Switch Audio Inputs ?

    Switch Audio Inputs ?


    Hello,

    I have a scanner radio that I input to the desktop pc via a USB Port.
    Then the pc outputs it on the Green audio jack to a pair of desktop speakers.
    Works fine.

    Now let's say I have another radio output which is inputted to the pc via the pc Line In Audio jack (Blue).

    How can I switch between them to the speakers ?
    Both come up on the Speaker Icon in the bottom task tray as being enabled, but not sure how to switch
    which one (only) actually goes to the desktop speakers (if both radios are working).

    Thanks,
    Bob

    Try playing around with disabling/enabling Recording devices under Sound Properties.

    If you have Realtek CODEC chip you can do it thru their control panel too.
