Use Volume Keys to control external display volume

Control the volume of the built-in speakers of your monitor using the volume keys on your keyboard

You can use the volume keys on your keyboard (generally same as the F11 / F12 function keys) to control the volume of your monitors with built-in speakers. To enable this option:

  • Click on the Settings Icon in DisplayBuddy > Preferences > Keyboard Shortcuts and check “Use Volume keys to control volume for all displays”.

  • macOS requires you to give DisplayBuddy additional permissions to utilise your volume keys. You’ll need to provide Accessibility permissions to DisplayBuddy via macOS System Preferences > Privacy & Security > Accessibility > Enable DisplayBuddy.

The video above also shows you all steps needed to enable volume control using volume keys on your keyboard.
