DejaMenu has been discontinued
Email me when discounted: 
DejaMenu allows you to access the menubar as a context menu. This is useful for people with large monitors, or multiple monitors.

What's New

Version 1.2.2:
  • Mac OS X 10.5 Compatible. Due to lack of time and resources, this build is only tested against 10.4 and greater.
  • Fixed a long standing bug where the modifiers aren't displayed in the configuration panel.
  • Fixed a bug where, upon first launching DejaMenu, a small white dot would appear in the bottom left hand corner.

Requirements

Mac OS X 10.4 or later

Nice to see a new version. Working here in Leopard. Still would like to see more options for bringing it up though. :(

I still think it would be much more useful if the menus could be added to the right click context menu. Middle mouse button, Left+Right together, anything other than just the keyboard. I had to stop using it because of Logitech's software.

Use USB Overdrive instead of Logitechs useless driver!

It works for free, but is well worth the fee of USD 10.

Anyway, assign a command key sequence to any mouse key of your choice and your set to go.

With one MX510 and one MX518 still in box.

Agreed, assigning DejaMenu to the scrollball button would be handy.

Would be nice to configure, I would like to have the Application menu items be shown fully on activation, with the rest displayed as submenus.

Still handy either way, great for a dual monitor setup.

Great application for anyone with multiple monitors. I've set up the DejaMenu hotkey combination to be Cmd-Opt-Z, as it is easy to press these three keys with my left hand. Better yet, I've set a button on my Microsoft mouse to the same hotkey combination, so now I can use the mouse to pop up the DejaMenu menu.

The only things I'd like to see improved/added would be to make the name of the application appear in bold (as on the menu bar), and add the Apple menu to the top of the pop-up menu.

Good little application. I have been looking for something to aid me with my mutlimonitor setup for some time and this fits the bill so far nicely. Unfortunately I had to install Logitech's driver for my mouse to assign the scroll button press to do the keys CMD-SHIFT-M to bring up the menu, but it isn't a huge hassle. (It would be better if there was an option to add the menus to the existing context menu available through a right click, rather than a separate one. Then I don't need the logitech software.)

I'm using ControllerMate to make it come up on middle-mouse-button myself. It really should have mouse support directly.

I soooooooooooooo love this. Next best thing until I can just actually think: "open this or that menu".

In conjunction with my pen tablet it is great: I just assigned the app itself to a button and voilˆ :-) Next I was hoping to find something to hide the menubar altogether... (used to have this under OS9) way back... in my search I stumbled onto the elusive "Barmaid" ... they all know what she looks like but nobody "did" her, and baretender her male friend gets you nowhere either LOL Well anyway DŽjˆMenu is reeeeeaaaaaaaaaalllllllly PRACTICAL !

This is handy and flawless. Would be nice if you could quit it more easily. But one of those little programs that make Macs as great as they are.

Nice utility. Any chance to add a modification key to open it using the mouse???

Not totally compatible with 10.4, since it wouldn't launch for me. /Volumes/DejaMenu 1.2/DejaMenu.app/Contents/MacOS/DejaMenu: CGWindowContextCreate: failed to create software delegate.

Did you copy the application to your HD *then* tried to run it?

Great - now if you could just hide the menu bar as well we'd be all set!!

Huge wraps on this, which for such a tiny piece of code, and at such a great price (!) looks set to become a standard on my computer.

One star off (should really be half a star, but hey, you work with what you're given) in the Features and Ease of Use categories because the documentation tells me that "keyboard navigation is now on", but doesn't tell me how to use it. I'd really like to know. I will, of course, email the author. And hey, it's not a biggy. As soon as it's fixed, it's five stars all around. Great stuff!
