Quick Tip #4: Move Menubar Icons

2 10 2006

In Mac OS X the top right hand corner of the menubar holds a number of icons, usually controls for the built in AirPort and Bluetooth, a battery metre if it’s a laptop, a clock and Spotlight search.

You can change the position of these icons by holding ⌘ (Cmd) and dragging them into their new positions. You can also use this method to remove an icon from the menubar; simply drag the icon off the menubar and let go of the mouse and the icon will disappear in a puff of smoke.

Since the Spotlight search icon is fixed, you can’t move or remove this icon.
