    That doesn't allow you to change the audio output device for each app does it? (I have 3 audio devices)
    Unfortunately not!

    I had the same question. Found this:

    1803 Volume mixer shortcut name? : Windows10

    I used the .vbs script solution with a shortcut on Desktop, works very well.

    Thanks. That script opens the Device Properties page for the Mic - see attached screenshot. Any idea how the script can be modified to open the App volume device preferences screen?

    You can change the tab number on that script. In my case I've changed from 6 to 7 and worked.

    Perfect - thanks. It was 9 in my case but I now see the logic in it!

    Nice. Pasting here to have it here too:

    Save following text to a vbs file and run it

    Set oShell = WScript.CreateObject ("WScript.Shell")
    oShell.run "ms-settings:sound"
    WScript.Sleep 1000
    oShell.SendKeys "{TAB 6}"
    oShell.SendKeys " "

    As of Windows 10, version 1903 you can do this:
    Right-click on the desktop and hit New > Shortcut
    paste in this: explorer.exe ms-settings:apps-volume


    Hit next give it a name and you are done :)

    you can find settings to link to here https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/uwp/launch-resume/launch-settings-app

    ms-settings:apps-volume
