My laptop is an Acer 5732Z with Windows 7 Home. Sometimes I want to use my headphones to listen to music and sometimes I want to use the internal speakers just for general use. It's annoying that I have to unplug my headphones to re-enable the internal speakers. If there any simple way (via software or a vulcan death grip on the keyboard) to get my machine to switch between these devices without me having to keep unplugging the headphones?
Ok, I know this might seem like I am being really lazy and it is trivial to unplug them but it's unnecessary wear and tear on the connector and jack and as much as possible I like to just plug things in and leave them be.
I suspect this is a hardware level issue that is immutable but it's be great if I am wrong and someone can tell me how to get around this.
