    Easy fast Audio switcher?


    Back on windows 7, I used audio switcher for the tray icon to switch fast and easy between several audio outputs.

    Now that I've been on windows 10, I've been hoping they'd make a version for Windows 10....but alas I don't think they have.

    So my question is, is there any such programs out there to help me easily switch between outputs on the fly? and without going through a bunch of Windows as usual.

    What about opening Control Panel, right click on Sound and select Create shortcut. You'll get an error and a question about creating it on the Desktop, click Yes.

    When you click on it, you go to this

    Will that work for you?

    That's currently what I'm doing now but it doesn't really work for me. If there's nothing else out there, I'll probably just stick with that.

    There is a Windows 10 version of AudioSwitch: Releases · sirWest/AudioSwitch · GitHub

    I just tried it, saves one whole click! Not worth it to me to have another program running in the background using resources. Still takes two clicks instead of 3 using the shortcut.

    I didn't know they were on github, I only ever checked their website
