Fine-tune the Brightness and Volume on your Mac

Anyone who has a Mac is pretty used to using the key along the top of the keyboard to perform tasks. For example the F1 & F2 keys to alter the screen brightness and F10 & F11 to change the volume, but can you change these levels more finely?

Well you can,

Press ALT+SHIFT together with either F1, F2,F10 or F11 to adjust the volume or brightness more finely.

You will notice that the blocks which indicate the brightness or volume increase and decrease more finely. Here’s a screenshot to show this. Notice how only half a block is filled?

We asked for Luke to come in for a training day with our staff since we were taking over the running of a Mac office and all had very little experience of using them. We found the half a day of training exceptionally useful. We were taught basic things, however we could already see that they would greatly increase our productivity and understanding of how to get the best out of using the Mac computers. The session was the best of both worlds of being taught the basics that we were lacking but without going too basic and wasting time. Will definitely be getting Luke back in again soon!

Thank you Luke for sorting out all my Apple issues! Luke was able to set up my multiple computers, phones and iPads with home and business email and calendar accounts. I have used his services multiple times and he always knows what to do, from printers, wifi and fix any issues whenever my Mac breaks or I need help with Office apps. Highly recommended.
