    Sound output made easier!


    Hi guys; shouldn't be there by now a easier sound switch to switch between PC sound and output to HDMI?

    I don't think the control panel way is any harder but it would be interesting to know if there is any other way. The shortest way is to create a shortcut of "Sound" on the desktop if you switch audio outputs frequently.

    But Shawn maybe able to provide a bat file to add "Sound" to context menu.

    Unless it does everything in less than 2 clicks of a mouse, putting the "Sound" shortcut on the desktop is way better because you don't have to install anything.

    You should have the same thing already built into the right click speaker icon menu:

    How many clicks is that Edwin? Doing the same thing on Win 7 takes 5 clicks to do. The OP wants easier way which for me is about "less" clicks.
