Mac Tip: Switch Audio Input/Output Quickly Through Menu Bar

Did you know that you can quickly switch your Mac’s audio inputs and outputs from the menu bar? Well, I didn’t until just a few days ago. I know this trick works on Lion and Mountain Lion. I’m not so sure about older operating systems.

Option-click your volume icon in your Mac’s menu bar. Voila! You can quickly set your input and output there. Saves so much time, especially with Mountain Lion’s new airplay functionality.
