After that, the icon for “megaphone” will appear on the top panel — as a rule, between the icon indicate the signal strength, Wi-Fi and battery charge level. Now, to change the display output or audio input, just click on the icon while pressing Option. Here everything can be done in one click, including go to sound settings. However, now they you are unlikely to need.
