End Menubar Headaches With A Click
What do you see just to the right of the Apple icon in the upper left of the Mac’s Menubar? App menus, right? If your in Safari, the menu says Safari, File, Edit, View, etc.
Those are the app menus and every app running on your Mac has a slightly different set of menus.
However, app menus have a few things in common. They’re always on the left side (next to the Apple icon), and they can crowd out the handy dandy, A #1 triple distilled Menubar apps to the right.
Menubar apps are the ones we like to collect. Apple gives us a few, like Airport, Sound, Day and Date, Spotlight, Bluetooth, and others. But we collect even more and it doesn’t take much to crowd the Menubar to the point where some of those utility apps disappear.
Enough already. Get AccessMenuBarApps and let it handle Menubar apps the easy way.
What it does is this: instead of trying to manage the little utility Menubar apps, it simply hides the app’s menus until you need them. Use a keyboard shortcut and the app’s menu appears. Or, bump the top border on the Mac’s screen with the mouse pointer. Or, simply click on the AccessMenuBarApps icon right next to the Apple icon.
Magically, the frontmost app’s menu items appear and you’re good to go. That means your Menubar utilities are always visible, right where you want them, no matter how many menu items an app may have.
Preferences? Of course you have preferences.
There’s all kinds of goodies which you can use to make the app’s menu visible. There’s the hotkey which you control.
You can also set the mouse pointer to make the menus visible by pushing or knocking. And, you control the area of the Menubar that is sensitive to the pointer.
There’s even options for visual effects and sound effects.
All that Menubar clutter is an age old problem for Mac users who collect a few dozen Menubar utilities and tools and always want them available.
It’s easy if you’re running a 27-inch Mac display, but the problem is quickly evident on a smaller MacBook screen. The AccessMenuBarApp solution is donationware.
