    Hi everyone,

    A quick question. How do you change the volume in half steps on a MBP (running Mojave) with a touch bar? On non-touch bar Macbooks, I would use Shift+Option+either volume up or down buttons, and this will change the volume in small increments. I can't seem to do this on a MBP with touch bar. Any ideas?

    Same way, just expand the control strip by tapping the < indicator so that it expands and you get the up/down volume keys.

    It's true but only if you didn't removed those buttons when personalized the Touch Bar.

    On my Mac, I just kept the volume slider and the mute button (personal choice).

    I know that if I swipe right, on the button of the volume slider, it will increase volume by one step. Same idea in the opposite way, if I swipe left it will decrease volume.

    As I'm writing this forum post, I tried the Option+Shift combination like Semaphoric said and it worked! :eek:

    So if you want to increase the volume by half a step, you press Option+Shift and you SWIPE right on the button that represent the volume slider. Same idea for decreasing volume, the difference is that you will SWIPE left...

    The following video is a little example of how to do it, even if it's difficult to show that I swipe on the button...

    Best regards
