How to easily swap between headphones and speakers in Windows?
On a Windows 11 PC, the sound output automatically switches to the device you plugged in or connected. But if you have connected multiple sound output devices to your Windows 11 PC, then you can easily switch between them. There’s an incredibly easy, simple way to swap between audio devices right from your taskbar. Here’s how it is done.
Change the Sound Output Device in Windows 11
Firstly make sure the audio devices you want to use are connected to your PC. And, to change where the computer should play sound on Windows 11, use these steps:
Click on the icons that consist of the Volume, Ethernet, and Battery icons located at the bottom right. When you see the panel click on the arrow that’s next to the volume slider. Once you click on the arrow, you’ll see all the audio devices that are connected to your Windows 11 computer. Simply click on the one you want to hear the sound from, and you’re good to go.
When you’re done, click anywhere outside the Quick Settings menu to close it. You switch speakers at any time again by using the Quick Settings menu at any time.
