iMac target display mode and target audio

Added on by Rick Stawarz.

Every now and then, I stumble upon something that's a game changer for my personal workflow, but way too nerdy to share on the main Appinstructor blog. Here's one of those things.

Our home has a 27" iMac which my wife mainly uses, but when I'm at the desk, I like to use it as a display with my MacBook. (Learn more about Target Display Mode here.) What has always bugged me though, is that when playing audio, it would play though the laptop's speakers, and not the iMac's. Apparently, I was doing it wrong. When you Option-click the audio icon in the menu bar, "iMac" is one of the options.
