    I donā€™t have that icon on my control panel for adjusting sound. How do I get it there?

    Patti: Go to System Preferences, Sound, then check "Show volume in menu bar."

    I have OS 10.11.6 El Capitan on my iMac and I cannot locate any control for the volume other that the icon in the top bar which I can only "drag" up or down.
    Any solutions?

    Jest: I believe if you are still on El Capitan, then all you get is that simple slider. You'll need to upgrade your macOS for the latest features.
