    If you have the volume slider showing in your Mac's menu bar try pressing the option key while clicking on the icon. A list of all available audio inputs and outputs will appear allowing you to switch among them without opening the Sound preference pane. You can open the pane from here ... ...

    I should mention, to be fair to Slydude, that this blog post is his (I only published it).

    Thanks for the positive feedback. Hopefully this will be a recurring column along with the occasional longer how to/tutorial as time permits.

    Suggestions for future columns are always welcome.

    I started this post while searching for the key commands to get fine volume adjustment using the audio keys on the keyboard. This feature was gone in Lion but its back in 10.7.4.. To see what I wanted press Shift and Option while pressing one of the volume up/down keys. Each key press seems to adjust volume about one-third or one-hals of what it does normally
