I use both Macs and PCs. Macs are great but here's one thing I can do on my PCs that I have not been able to find how to do in macOS.

On my PCs (Windows 7 and Windows) I have a utility called "7+ Taskbar Tweaker."

That has an option to allow me to control the speaker volume by putting the mouse anywhere in the taskbar and as I scroll up/down while the mouse is still in the taskbar the volume changes up/down:

enter image description here

This is really very handy and so much more efficient than how volume control is done in macOS where one has to:

  • Mouse up to the menu bar.
  • Click on the speaker.
  • Mouse over to the speaker slide.
  • Scroll and adjust the volume.

I'm hoping there is a way to have the same ability in a Mac that I have in my PCs i.e., to control the volume by simply mousing up to anywhere in the Menu bar and then simply scrolling up/down to change the volume up/down.

Does anyone have any suggestions or know of a way to have this in a Mac?

  • Voting to close because what is being asked is not a Windows versus macOS equivalent, but rather a software recommendation based on a user installed Windows app called "7+ Taskbar Tweaker." Nov 23, 2020 at 14:14
