    I have a set of Bluetoth headphones and just figured out how to get music out of
    them. I found Audio Devices and simply have to switch from speakers to
    headphones. All well and good, but since I often switch back and forth between
    the two, I'd like to know if, insteadd of having to do several mouse clicks to
    get to the Audio Decive manager, is there a way to create a shortcut for my desk
    top or pin it to my task bar? I know how to create a shortcut using thew right
    click and send to. But I have no idea where the Audio Device manager is located
    in Windows so I can go to the folder and create a shortcut. Does anyone know?
    Thanks.

    Thanks. Yes, I have that icon. I'm just being lazy and trying to make it one
    icon, one click. Just playing around learning Windows 7 too.

    This is a slightly round about way to achieve the sort of thing that you
    want.
    Create a new folder on your desktop and rename it:
    GodMode.{ED7BA470-8E54-465E-825C-99712043E01C}
    Open it, go to Sounds/Manage Audio Devices. Right click, create shortcut.
    The shortcut to MAD should appear on your desktop. This won't work from
    Control Panel
