XMenu

1.9.9
06 April 2018

Menubar item lists/launches apps, and more.

Overview

XMenu adds one or more global menus to the right side of the menu bar. They give you access to your preferred applications, folders, documents, files, and snippets. Launch any application, or insert text snippets or URLs into your email messages or Pages documents with a single menu choice.
  • No need for configuration
  • Six predefined folders: Applications, Developer Applications, Home, Documents, User-Defined, and Snippets
  • Keeps all your snippets and text modules handy
  • Operates as a menu extra, requires no hacks or extensions
  • Ideal replacement for Dock folders in OS X 10.5

This is one of the most useful apps I have. It provides quick access to all my files and apps without having the desktops littered with Finder windows – double-quick for the commonest items that I keep in the “user-defined” file – and the snippets are as easy to use as those offered by the ridiculously expensive specialist apps. And the service Devon offers is second to none.

No joy for me - installed ok on El CRAPITAN with SIP disabled and all I could see was the list of applications. no other folders showing.
Hit CMD to see preferences but prefs window never showed.
Had to delete due to limited funcionality under El CRAPITAN. If others have got it working, would appreciate suggestions.

Thank you so much for the inclusion of support for the Dark Mode of Yosemite. I have a visual impairment, and that makes it easier to use XMenu. I love the app and use it every day. I have found that on Yosemite there is a delay when I pull down one of my custom folders, before it will show the contents. If this can be addressed in a future update that would be great. Either way it's mandatory software for me.

Always been a fan of this, been using it since Snow Leopard. Clean and simple access to all your stuff without clicking through interminable finder windows. Great app!

For those of you who have used both, how is XMenu compared to FinderPop? Similar to XMenu, FinderPop uses a "FinderPop Items" folder in the user's library where the user can add aliases to folders, files, etc., which are then accessible via a contextual menu in the Menubar. Does XMenu have any particular advantages over FinderPop? Thanks in advance.

FolderGlance which has not been updated for almost 2 years is still the best on here and still working flawlessly (Thank God). It uses Quicklook to generate previews in the menu or directly inlined in the Finder. By far the best in this menu enhancing category (when it came along I ditched FinderPop.. though I had used it forever..). I'm a little puzzled that DevonTech does not make this more powerful. I always give it a twirl when it gets updated just to see if it got better.. Oh well... I love their apps though (I use DevonThink Pro all day long, DevonAgent and DevonSphere at times ). But this one here is really too basic. Free or not.

Could not figure out how the heck to make this work. When clicking app, all I see is an app window. Where are the preferences for this app. They do not show up as a sub menu in Mavericks. Any help?

I didn't see this post until now, so sorry it's a bit late. (I hadn't used the program in awhile.) Right click on it in the menu bar; that will reveal the preferences. From there you can find a variety of menu options. If you choose "User-Defined," then you can name it what you want. (You'll see the change in the menubar after you type the name and press the Return button.) To add items to that User-Defined menu, you'll have to go to the Users/Home Library, Application Support folder, XMenu folder, and then the Custom folder within that. Put your items in that Custom folder. (You can put folders in that folder as well.) You'll have to tinker with it a bit to get a feel for it.
