Previously, on Vista and Windows 7, changing the Default Playback device would occur instantly.
For example, audio is coming out of my speakers, I right click the
Volume Control, click
Playback Devices then I select another device and click
Set Default. Audio would be transferred immediately.
Unfortunately, now, with Windows 8, I need to kill whatever process that's outputting sound and restart it for the change to take effect.
Is there something that can be done about it so that changes are taken into account immediately?
