Mac Volume Control

If you’re a Mac user, then you probably know that you can adjust your computer’s output volume using the three buttons on the computer keyboard (volume up, volume down, and mute). When you press volume up or volume down, a display comes onscreen, showing the volume increasing or decreasing one step (“block”) at a time.

But did you know that as of OS X 10.5 (Leopard) you can also get fine control over the volume level? Just hold the shift and option keys while you press the volume up or down controls; now it will take four button presses to change the volume by one “block.” Just the thing when an increase or decrease of a full “block” is too much.
