How to enable the "popping" sound when adjusting the volume on your Mac

Give us back that pop!

Starting with MacOS Sierra and High Sierra, your Mac will no longer play a "pop" sound when you adjust your volume. If you prefer to have this sound when you adjust volume up and down (as I do), this guide will teach you how to reenable it.


Open Sound System Preferences

Navigate to System Preferences > Sound.

Navigate to Sound Effects

Select the Sound Effects tab.


Enable volume control feedback sound

Check the box labeled Play feedback when volume is changed. Close System Preferences.

You're all done!
