The Goldilocks of Volume Control on OS X Leopard

Picture 2.png

I came across this great hint on MacOSXHints.com that I thought I’d share with any of you fellow Leopard users:

When using the volume control function keys on an Apple laptop, there’s a limited amount of control over the volume — each key press moves the volume by one entire unit in the onscreen bezel. However, by pressing Shift and Option along with the volume key you want to use, you can break up each large step in the volume control bezel into four parts, instead of having to use the menu bar item or System Preferences for fine-grained control.

This is especially useful when using headphones on your laptop and the regular volume is either too loud or too quiet.

On this day..
