I often switch between using my headset and speakers on my computer depending on what I am doing and it is a bit annoying going through all the dialogs. Is it possible to write a script to simply switch between devices?

Those are only 5 clicks, for example, on Windows 7:

  1. Right click the audio icon.
  2. Click Playback Devices.
  3. Click your audio device.
  4. Click Set Default.
  5. Click OK or press ESC or ENTER.

For automation purposes, use AutoIt or AutoHotkey. We can't write this for you... :-)

(1) Five clicks is a lot; especially when done frequently. (2) They never said it was 7. (3) They may not even have the audio icon in the tray. (4) Yes you/we can write a script for them, it’s been done plenty of times here. (5) This “answer” to the question is/does not. (It is not an answer, it is a response, eg, a comment.) –  Synetech Aug 31 '11 at 1:13
