Most Mac apps use the Menubar which helps us to navigate menu selections. It’s not that the Menubar is difficult to find. It’s always in the same place. And that’s the problem. Why should we have to move the screen pointer to get to an app’s menu?
Bring The Menubar Menu To You
Frankly, the math of all those repetitive motions scares me a little. I don’t know how many times I move my hand to the mouse everyday, just to click on a Menubar selection.
Multiply that finger, wrist, and arm movement by hundreds of times a day, then by hundreds of days a year, and in 10 years you’ve gone repetitive stress disorder.
That may be an exaggeration for some, but not for everyone. Repetitive motions can mount up like a pile of hurt.
To reduce those motions add MenuEverywhere to your Mac.
What you get are a few options that help to reduce repetitive stress motions and expand the Mac’s functionality. MenuEverywhere can duplicate the Mac’s Menubar on second screens.
And, it attaches a Menubar to the top of app windows.
It’s a bit clunky looking, but it’s highly functional and works well.
There’s an easier way to get to those menu selections than moving them to the top of the app window. Bring the menus to wherever your Mac’s screen pointer is at the moment.
From a keyboard shortcut or button, MenuEverywhere brings the app’s menu direct to your screen pointer.
That means no moving the mouse or sliding across the trackpad. The app’s Menubar comes to you.
Select and navigate the app’s menu without leaving the keyboard. The only difference is that MenuEverywhere uses a vertical menu display instead of horizontal, but menu selections are the same as the app’s Menubar selections.
Every menu selection is option. Use only the ones you want. Configure button and Menbuar styles in Preferences. You can even adjust the font sizes from small to crazy large.
MenuEverywhere can be set to ignore specific apps and display app keyboard shortcuts in the pop out menus. There’s no easier way to reduce repetitive motions while navigating a Mac’s menus.
