    Mountain Lion has restored fine grain volume and brightness control by holding down shift + option and then adjusting brightness or volume levels.

    Thanks Apple!

    I'm trying to give you a thumbs up but for some reason it's not working. Thanks!

    That's weird then, it never worked for me and I recall it being mentioned a lot on MacRumors when Lion was released. Maybe you got a special copy.

    What do you mean, "restored"?

    Am I missing something? Snow Leopard had this feature and upon switching to Lion it no longer worked. Unless that was fixed in one of the later updates of Lion?

    bring back (a previous right, practice, custom, or situation);

    This is likely the case, as many who had/have Lion reported that this works. I know what the word means. I wasn't aware the feature was ever gone.

    Yes, it was definitely missing in the early release of Lion. I recall many members of MacRumors posting that it no longer worked. I was unaware that it was brought back in a later release of Lion.

    You are correct. It was there in Snow Leopard, then gone with the release of Lion, then came back in Lion with the 10.7.4 update.
