Access the menubar from any window.

Overview

MenuEverywhere makes the menu bar's menu accessible from any window on any screen. If you've got a large monitor or a dual or multi-monitor setup, then MenuEverywhere will eliminate the frustration of having to reach out for the menubar and losing focus on your work.

Access menu bar menus in the following ways:

  • Screen-top menu bar on (non-primary) secondary screens that mimics the actual Apple menu bar
  • Window-attached menu bar
  • Window-attached menu button
  • Hotkey or mouse button pops-up menu at mouse location
Features:
  • Menu access methods are all optional, those not used may be switched off
  • Configurable button/menu bar styles
  • Multiple font sizes for menu labels and menu items (small to super-large)
  • Auto-hide
  • Able to show Apple menu in addition to application's menu
  • Ignore list to prevent usage on apps of your choosing
  • Fold/unfold alternate menu items
  • Showing shortcuts is optional

MenuEverywhere is not a hack and does not use or rely on any system hacks, nor does it modify your system's core functionality. It relies on standard Apple programming interfaces.

MenuEverywhere is fully functional for 14 days without a license. However, it will display a small reminder to buy it.

I bought this application and emailed the developer asking for the feature to disable the menu from the screen since I use the hotkey only. I received an email containing a version of MenuEverywhere that fit my needs until a new version would be released as he had other features he wanted to add before releasing an update. The official update came one day later and here it is. This is a great app with a great proactive developer behind it. I would recommend this app to everyone. It's a life saver. I can't say enough about how great an app this is and how great the customer service is. The app is lightweight, taking up nearly no system resources and has many different ways of accessing the menu. I would download this and give it a try. Definitely worth the $7. An os x app that is finally priced right. Most dev's imo figure if you can afford a mac you can afford their $40-$50 one trick pony. Definitely worth the download and if you have a request, the dev is super helpful as I mentioned. Five stars from me!

I loved this app and used it constantly, but…alas…it appears to no longer work with macOS Sierra (10.12). Looking for alternatives.

I have been using this through a number of OS iterations. From 10.6 up to 10.9.5, MenuEverywhere just works well.

Doesn't work with Mavericks as you cannot "Turn on Assistive Devices" with the Mavericks Preference Pane.

It's moved to Security, where what you have to do is pick the Privacy tab, then pick MenuEverywhere.

Thanks. Now I know how to Turn on Assitive Devices, the trial period is over, so I cannot evaluate it. Pity the developer did not bother to update their instructions.

After an exhaustive process of trial and elimination, I'm fairly certain MenuEverywhere is the cause of my dominant grief under 10.9 - I kept getting major and frequent system slow downs involving a process called com.apple.iconServicesMonitor and the only way to get my MacBook Pro back to normal was to kill that process. That process is supposed to pop up every now and then, do its thing and then vanish, but it seems MenuEverywhere keeps repeatedly forcing it into the open once it appears on its own. MenuEverywhere has problems anyway, it hasn't been updated in a year and it's likely abandonware at this point.

MenuEverywhere is most definitely *NOT Abandonware*. We are still actively developing it and have delayed the release of a new version to iron out bugs related to Mavericks. That beign said, we've had scant reports of bugs from Mavericks users (and we use it ourselves on Mavericks). If you do experience problems, please email support@binarybakery.com describing the steps to replicate the bug. Thanks and happy Thanksgiving!

It appears that the license from 1.x works with 2.0. So you can update without worry. Developer may need to confirm this. I did not see one way or another on the website.

I just experienced a veeeery slow and fairly unresponsive Mac.. went to Activity Monitor.. MenuEverywhere was eating away 4GB or my RAM.. Not sure how that happened..as I've been using it for quite some time and had never run into this. My Mac has been on for two days (I tend to reboot every morning) and I have worked with all sorts of software since yesterday.. launching, quitting etc.. Not sure if one gave ME a hardship.. in any case, quit ME and got my RAM back :-) Before checking Activity Monitor I thought Adobe was eating away at my RAM and it ended up being this..

Hi there, Thank you for your feedback. MenuEverywhere is Lion compatible and each release is tested on multi monitor Snow Leopard and Lion systems to ensure smooth behavior. For the stutter and redraw issue, I'll apprdciate it if you contact me at support@binarybakery.com to investigate and resolve. It may very well be an issue related to a specific setup. Thank you

What a bummer that it won't work on PPC. Yes, I'm afraid I do still expect my G5 to be catered for.
