Headphones or speakers in windows 7, Can't have both?
Looked over the other questions, nothing seemed close.
My machine was dual boot, XP and Vista ultimate, now XP and Windows 7. In both XP and Vista I could have the speakers and the headphones plugged in together, both playerd noise, and I could use one or the other by plugging them into the front and back audio jacks.
This enables me to play games during day with speakers, and then at night with head phones, and no reaching round under my desk to remove cables.
Now I am using windows 7 and amongst the many other problems I have with it, I can't play with speakers or headphone until I have gone through a silly lot of clicking to disable one or choose the other as default. Why has this been changed in windows 7 after Vista, it seems an utterly pointless logic. I can turn my speakers off with the power button and get the headphones working. Now I am either or. So my brand new IR head phones are wasted. Please someone tell me there is a work around?
It's little meddling silliness like this that make me want to remain in XP.
Much thanks in anticipation someone has figured a work around.
