SOLVED: I would love a hotkey or desktop icon to disable/enable my default audio device


Hi! I have a DAC connected to my computer that sometimes doesn't wake up after my PC awakens after sleep.

If I go to Control Panel --> Sound and disable and re-enable it, it works again.

I don't want to use AutoHotkey, but if anyone reading this could create a tiny program that enables me to disable and then enable my default sound playback device, that would be really, really great.


NirSoft's SoundVolumeView seems to do what you want.

You can switch between disabled and enabled state by using the /DisableEnable command, for example:
SoundVolumeView.exe /DisableEnable "Realtek High Definition Audio\Device\Speakers\Render"
--- End quote ---

If working then you can simply make a shortcut with such parameters and run it twice to disable and re-enable the DAC.


You did it!

It works like a charm!

Thank you so much.

I am really grateful.

Happy to help  :)

Additional note to myself: it seems also possible to disable/reenable devices from Powershell

Thanks, Nod5.  I'll mark this thread as solved and move it.
