# How can I set sliders to values outside the limits allowed by their slider?

How can I allow value sliders to be set higher than certain values?
For example, I can't slide the subsurf slider past 6.
This might seem like a bit of a silly question, but it always bugged me when watching a tutorial or something and somebody said something like

blender can't do more than 6 subdivisions, so add two modifiers

It just seems clunky to add another modifier.

How can I set a value slider such as the subserf setting higher than it normally goes?
