Windows 11 Sound Setings
Windows 11 speaker icon in the Taskbar will no longer link to the old style, W7 sound panel. The new Sound settings is a hodge-podge of sliders and dropdown menus.
With multiple DAX devices, CODAC's, and audio devices it's very difficult to manage the sound settings using the new style. The old-style Sound panel allowed you to scroll through the sound devices and by double clicking on the icon, you could easily change the settings.
For now, taken from the Control Panel, I was able to place a Sound Shortcut on my Desktop, but you can't pin it to the taskbar. Who knows how longer that will last? The next update could remove the Sound Panel altogether making it difficult for us Hams to manage the sound devices.
At the bottom of the W10/11 Sounds settings there is a "Give feedback" link where you can voice your opinion. I urge flex Radio owners to do just that. If Microsoft gets enough feedback, maybe they will at least add the Sound panel link back to the speaker Icon and keep the old-style Sound panel.
