How to: Quickly switch audio input in Lync 2013


When I move my computer around I tend to plug in and out different headsets, and Lync more often than not have the wrong one set as the default one. This results in that I a lot of times when on voice calls have to hang up, click the cogwheel icon, then Tools and Audio Device Settings, and pick the right audio device.

I’ve done this ever since Lync 2013 was released… up until today when I discovered a clever icon in the lower right corner of Lync. With two clicks I can now pick my Logitech headset – and hopefully remember to do it before a call starts.
