OS X :: How To Change Volume Keyboard Shortcut


I used the migration assistant to move most of my stuff from my old MBP to my new one, but that seems to have had the strange effect of keeping the keyboard settings for the old MBP. Very simply, I'd like to set f12 to increase volume, F11 to decrease etc. but I can't work out where I would change those settings. I've been able to change things like expose and dashboard, but this is proving to be a pain in the backside.

OS X Leopard :: How To Program Keyboard Shortcut For Sound Volume
My Macally keyboard has no preprogrammed volume keys. I know how to program keyboard shortcuts in System Prefs, but I can't figure out what to type for this command. I've tried "Increase volume" and "Decrease volume," "Volume up," and everything else I can think of, but they don't work. Anyone know exactly what to type for the volume commands?

Snow Leopard :: How To Set Up Custom Keyboard Shortcut For Volume Control?
I use my black MacBook at work, connected to an external monitor and external keyboard. I'm looking for a way to set up the F buttons on my external keyboard as volume control, just as they do on my laptop keyboard. Looking for F3 to F5 to be volume mute, down, and up, respectively.I tried going into Keyboard Shortcuts in System Preferences but since there is no menu item for volume control I can't seem to add it. Anyone know how I can go about doing this or what I'm missing?

Mac Bluetooth :: Setting Volume Shortcut On New Apple Wireless Keyboard?
So i've searched and searched and i can't figure out how to set the f10, f11, and f12 keys on my Apple Wireless Keyboard to control my computer's volume. When I go to System Preferences> Keyboard> Keyboard Shortcuts I was able to set all the other F keys to their proper functions but I can't figure out how to assign volume control to any keys. Anyone know how to do this?

Final Cut Pro :: How To Change Keyboard Shortcut Layout
I read through all the keyboard shortcuts for final cut. And maybe I am just not understanding something here. Basically I do a lot of composite editing. I know how to change my keyboard shortcut layout and have done so to help me with toggling through composite modes. I was just wondering if there is a way to select the clip in the timeline that the playhead is over. Basically I will edit a clip that I can see in the canvas because the playhead is over it, then using my right arrow key, i move to the next clip to see it on the canvas. But when I modify the composite mode, it modifies the previous clip because that is still the one selected. is there any shortcut to select the clip that the playhead is over.

MacBook Pro :: Finding Keyboard Shortcut To Change Display (internal Or External) Resolution?
In clamshell mode, my MBP keeps feeding a resolution that my HDTV cant handle, and so my HDTV chooses to ignore it and turns off , telling me that the resolution is not optimum. If i open my lappie, both screens come on normally, it's only in clamshell that my lappie seems to be stuck on one resolution. So, without an external screen that is displaying the image, and with my lappie in clamshell, there's no way i can change the resolution! Is there anyway to reset/ change the display resolution via the keyboard?

Mac Pro :: How To Change Volume Keys On New Keyboard
I have a new flat keyboard, but cannot find a way to get my volume keys back. My old keyboard had its two volume keys independent, and only for that function. These were separate to the function keys. I know that F11 and F12 are hijacked for this by default but I am a professional Photoshop user, and need the function keys to trigger actions- so I have to turn on the "use as standard function keys" preference.

It is not possible for me to have these set as standard mac shortcuts, this is just too limiting for efficient Photoshop work. Is there a way to get the volume control assigned to the New key F18 and F19 on the right, where they will be out of the way? How do I get the old Shift Option subtle volume control back? I am aware that there is a volume in the title bar, but this is too slow to operate.

Mac Pro :: Sound Volume Does Not Change By Keyboard Control
OS X Lion, output: Cinema Display.Volume doesn't change by control keys on keyboard. But it does with software volume control (on iTunes, for example). When I press control buttons on keyboard, volume icon on display appears and changes - but not the volume. It lets me know that buttons are working, and Mac recognizes that.

Snow Leopard :: Change Amount Of Increase / Decrease Keyboard Volume Keys Cause?
Is it possible to change the amount of increase / decrease the keyboard volume keys cause? Right now, tapping F11 or F12 just once turns the volume up or down a LOT more than I want it to. Subtle changes are impossible.

Is there any way for me to change this so that pressing F11 and/or F12 only changes the volume a little?

Applications :: Control ITunes Volume (not System Volume) From Apple Aluminum Keyboard?
I have a Mac Pro and not too long ago I swapped from a fat, heavy and filthy white Apple Keyboard to a new skinny silver one. I like it, and also love that the F7-9 Skip Back-Pause/Play-Skip Forward keys work for iTunes, even when another app is active (what's the word I'm looking for - in focus or whatever). But I use Optical output, so the volume keys (F10-12) don't do anything. I know that, when iTunes is the active app, I can command-+/- to change the volume, but I'd love to be able to map the F10-12 keys to do that - without having to have iTunes active (playing, but not the active window).

OS X Leopard :: Volume Bars Don't Change Volume - Using Firewire Audio Interface
I'm using a presonus firepod (FP10) and using the line-outs to get sound to my speakers.

i noticed that my system volume controls do not change the volume. The sound volume at 0% system volume is the same as the sound volume at 50% system volume, which is also the same as the sound volume at 100% system volume.

Sound IS coming out, and it works, just that volume controls don't affect the volume.

Of course, I have my sound input / output set to the firepod in my system preferences.

MacBook Pro :: New Wireless Printer With Mbp - Volume Keys Don't Change Volume
I have a new Macbook Pro and just set up with the new bluetooth/wireless keyboard. When I hit the volume keys (mute, volume down, and volume up) which are also F10, F11, & F12 respectively it does not change the volume. For example if I hit the volume down/F11 key the open window minimizes. When hitting volume up/F12 it launches the "Dashboard" instead of increasing the volume.

I've tried holding down the Apple key while hitting the volume keys to see if that would work but it did not.

Can you tell me why the keys are not working as they are labeled (F1/F2 keys which are brightness controls also do not work as labled, etc)? And how can I resolve this so that they do work (I'm also curious why it didn't work when I set-up the keyboard and my Mac searched and found my keyboard).

MacBook Pro :: Won't Fix Volume, Display And Backlit Keyboard Brightness Keyboard
Yesterday i noticed that my magic mouse's right click wasn't working. Checked prefs, they were set right. Then realised neither was the backlit keyboard, or any of the hardware control keys, including display brightness, keyboard brightness, volume, or eject. Ran through the tests on the applecare cd, all passed. installed onyx, cleaned caches, ran scripts, did everything. No change. Reset PRAM, nothing, rebooted into safe mode, nothing. left machine off overnight, nothing, booted from install disk and fixed permissions and repaired the startup disk, nothing. Finally I redownloaded the 10.6.2 combo update and installed it, and rebooted. Finally my keys work, and the magic mouse right click function works, but there are still a couple of glitches. When i press any of the hardware control keys, instead of a cool bezel, i get a clunky white box about 5cm square on my 13" with the level block in the lower area. The volume level feedback isn't working either. (Prefs are set correctly for this too).

OS X :: Keyboard Shortcut Not Resetting
I set my fn key to display all windows (same as F3 default). I would like to remove this, but it doesn't show up on the system preferences shortcut list. Pressing "Restore Defaults" does nothing to alleviate the problem. Is there a way that I could reset all of my default shortcuts through terminal or something more powerful than system preferences?
