View Extra Audio Details in Snow Leopard

In Snow Leopard, Option-clicking the Volume icon in the menu bar displays a list of sound input and output devices. Choose one to switch to it; it's much easier than using the Sound preference pane. Also, hold Shift and click the icon to set the system volume, which is separate from the general output volume.

Apple Online Technical Support

Send Article to a Friend

Apple Online Technical Support -- Apple recently revamped their online support Web pages, creating an electronic help system that doesn't require its own tech support. Organized by product type (Desktop Computers, Portable Computers, Mac OS & Applications, etc.), this area of Apple's Web site includes Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs), Apple Tech Info Library (TIL) articles, related software updates, and free-form discussion areas monitored by Apple employees. I was able to find just about anything within two or three mouse clicks, and because the pages are fairly graphics-free (I especially like the simple folder-tab motif used throughout) the information loads quickly.
