5 Of The Most Useful Apps For Your Mac's Menu Bar
Don’t let all of that space go to waste.
Kenny Yeo

The menu bar is the space that runs on the top of your Mac desktop. It spans the entire width of your screen and is possibly the most overlooked space on your desktop. With the help of some apps, you can use it to display much more than just the time and date.

By default, macOS already has builtin controls to organise your menu bar items — simply hold down on the Command ( ) and click on the icon to move it around. Bartender, however, is a much more powerful tool that lets you hide your menu bar items. This keeps your menu bar tidy and is particularly useful if you have a lot of menu bar items or if you are using a smaller display. You can even configure it in such a way that hidden menu bar items automatically reveal themselves if the app has an update. And if you are the type who prefers to keep your hands on the keyboard instead of reaching for the mouse, Bartender has plenty of keyboard shortcuts, allowing users to navigate through menu bar icons using their keyboard. There’s even a nifty search function so there’s no need to go looking around for the menu bar item that you want.
