The Dock wasn’t made to hold dozens and dozens of apps. The Menubar is already crowded. What can you do to manage all those useful apps on your Mac?
Make A Custom Menu
Don’t you just love useful, well designed Mac apps with clever names. What would you name an app that gives you a menu you can customize to your heart’s content?
Hmmm. A clever menu with customization options. Hmmm. How about CustomMenu?
It may sound like work to create a custom menu that makes it easy to click and select an app without using the Dock, but it’s simple.
CustomMenu is a global menu which resides in the Menubar. Use it to open apps, find files and folders.
All the action takes place with a single click. Getting started with CustomMenu is straightforward. You’ll be running it in minutes.
Simple add apps to a group in CustomMenu.
It’s a easy as that. Then, click on the CustomMenu icon in the Menubar to view apps in your groups.
CustomMenu lists your favorite apps and gives menu selections to navigate your Mac.
Create as many groups of apps as you need. Then, select each with a click to the Menubar.
In many respects CustomMenu is a bit like the old Apple Menu back in the days of Mac OS Classic.
It’s customizable because you create your own groups of apps. As an example, one group for Apple apps, one for Microsoft Office apps, one for Adobe apps, and another for third party utilities or other apps.
Instead of digging into the Finder, from whichever app you’re using at the moment, all your apps and files and folders are merely a click away. CustomMenu is well done, elegant, should be included in OS X, but is a bargain price anyway.
