Enable or disable sound device in Windows 11? This is how!

If you have multiple audio devices installed, then you can manage whether to use these audio devices as well. By enabling or disabling a specific speaker, headphones, or other output devices in Windows 11, you use only that device for audio output.

You are not removing the device from your computer by turning off an audio device. Instead, you disable it, and in doing so, you prevent Windows 11 from automatically switching to this audio device. This is recommended, for example, if you have several speakers installed but don’t use them all. Sometimes Windows 11 will automatically switch to the wrong audio output device.

If, for example, you have no sound on your PC and you also see that the sound is unavailable. In this case, it is recommended that you check whether the audio device is switched on. By turning on the audio device, you can use it again.
