Use Control Centre on Mac
Control Centre on Mac gives you quick access to key macOS settings — such as volume, brightness, Wi-Fi or Focus — and indicates when your Mac is using a camera or microphone. You can customise Control Centre to add other items, such as accessibility shortcuts or Fast User switching.
Use Control Centre
On your Mac, click Control Centre in the menu bar.
An orange dot next to the icon indicates the microphone on your Mac is in use; you can see which apps are using it at the top of Control Centre.
Do any of the following with items in Control Centre:
Drag a slider to increase or decrease a setting — for example, drag the Sound slider to adjust the volume on your Mac.
Click an icon to turn a feature on or off — for example, click AirDrop or Bluetooth to turn it on or off.
Click an item (or its arrow ) to show more options — for example, click Focus to show your Focus list and turn a Focus on or off, or click Screen Mirroring to choose a target display.
Tip: If you often use an item, you can drag it from Control Centre to the menu bar, to keep it handy there. To remove the item from the menu bar, press and hold the Command key while you drag the item out of the menu bar.
Customise Control Centre
On your Mac, choose Apple menu > System Preferences, then click Dock & Menu Bar .
Click a section in the sidebar to show items that are always in Control Centre or that you can add.
Control Centre: The items in this section are always shown in Control Centre; you can’t remove them. Select an item in the sidebar to show a preview of it in on the right.
Other Modules: You can add the items in this section to Control Centre. Select an item in the sidebar, then select the item’s Show in Control Centre tick box.
To include an item in the menu bar for even faster access, select its Show in Menu Bar tick box.
You can’t add items in the Menu Bar Only section to Control Centre.
