That crowded and cluttered Mac Menubar. There are so many useful utilities for the Mac, many of which use the Menubar as home, that it gets so crowded some app icons disappear.
Apple doesn’t give you a way to manage those apps in the Menubar but Bartender does. Bar-tender. Menu-bar. Clever, no?
Bartender gives you a second, pop-down Menubar and you choose which Menubar apps reside in it. For example, keep all of Apple’s Menubar apps in the top Menubar, and put all your cherished utilities in the bottom Menubar.
Here are some examples:
Click on the Bartender icon and it pops down the second Menubar, or choose to leave it visible all the time. You can even move the bar left or right and anchor it in place.
Bartender eliminates the problem where a Mac app’s menu items crowd out some of the extra apps in the right-side Menubar.
What’s missing? Organization. I would love to be able to organize which apps are positioned where in both Menubars.
Otherwise, nicely done, clever, elegant, inexpensive and solves a growing clutter problem, especially with Mac notebook users who have limited screen space.
