Default Sound Gadget (defunct)

Change the default sound device in
Windows with a simple Desktop Gadget!

Default Sound Gadget

Change the default sound device in Windows 7 / Vista with just one click.
If you have more than one sound device connected to your desktop
(ex.: Headphones and Speakers) and you need to switch between them this gadget will help you a lot. I created this because it's really annoying to go to "ControlPanel>Sound>Select Device>Set as default" every time you want to change the the audio device.

How it works?

Default Sound Gadget it's a simple to use software.


1 - Set the device 1 as the default device for audio reproduction.
2 - Set the device 2 as the default device for audio reproduction.
3 - Open sound preferences from the control panel .
4 - Open gadget settings.
5 - Close the gadget.
Due to a smart feature, when you change the default device it wont change the default communication device.
