I think there is a way to write a little file in Batch, I believe to change the default sound output system. What's the language that's written in and how can I write it (I am running Windows 7)? Thanks.

EDIT: I know how to change it normally btw... I just want a faster way to execute it so I don't have to go to my sound properties.

I believe it would be easier to use a hotkey.

Hope this helps. How to change the default audio device with a hotkey.
