Smaller volume adjustments!

It is possible to make smaller volume adjustments than what the default volume keys let you do without even going to the volume menu. The shortcut for doing so is holding down "Shift - Option" when pressing on the volume adjustment keys. The shortcut unfortunately doesn't work for other adjustments like brightness.

About yesterday's tip, I got a few emails about not being precise enough about how to open that "Get Info" window. It is in the File menu of the Finder and you can also get it with the shortcut "Command - I".

Shift/ alt does it on mine!. I noticed that shift in conjunction with the volume keys stops the volume change alert sound.

Also, if you hold just the "alt" key when pressing the F10, F11 or F12 key, it brings up sound preferences menu window. Cool tip. But I also have to use shift + alt to do smaller increments...

Great Tip! That always annoyed me, it would go from to quiet to too loud.

if you don't like the volume adjustment sound, you can disable it. just uncheck the box that says "play feedback when volume is changed" in the "sound effects" tab in the sound preferences
