FYI, if you guys have BetterTouchTool (as most of you have), this is useless. The feature is included in BTT

It works, it works well. And it save me a lot of moving up to the menu. Should be a feature in OS X esp as screens gets bigger and bigger

For years I've been using two high-resolution 24" monitors side by side. I usually prefer doing my work on the right-hand monitor and having reference material on the left side. The right hand monitor doesn't have a menubar, which makes things even worse. Since day one I've always dreaded needed to go into a menu, as it meant I had to STOP what I was doing, LOCATE the mouse cursor wherever it was hiding on the screen, MOVE IT ACROSS *TWO* SCREENS, find the MENU ITEM, click it, then RETURN THE CURSOR TO ITS OLD LOCATION AND RE-ACTIVATE the work area. Pure pain. To alleviate this, I use keyboard shortcuts as much as possible, but there's always that time when you need to access something that you either haven't bound to a keyboard shortcut, or just don't know the shortcut, especially if you need to do some action you only use rarely. Well, I had no idea a program like MenuPop existed, and it has completely solved the problem for me! I'm stunned! A simple keyboard press brings up the menu immediately, without having to interrupt my work! It is an INCREDIBLY good utility, allowing me to stay "in the zen" of what I am working on and quickly get to any action I need to perform. No longer do I dread going to the menus or even exploring things I hadn't seen in them before. You become a true menu warrior with this application! ;-) It's priced fairly, and the developer is very responsive. Please, if you have multiple screens, download the demo of this program and give it a try for your own sake. I am sure you will find it to be one of your ESSENTIAL pieces of Mac software!

I see great use for this even if you only have one screen. The ease of access to the menu gets addictive. Give it a try!

You do know, don't you, that you can move the default screen where the menubar is located, in your Displays preferences under Arrangement?

I purchased this before it was on app store. I have had great response from the developer when I've had questions, and have experienced no problems whatsoever. This new release is great! Now if I could just remember to use it...lol

I think there is a serious bug When i run menupop and i switch with any application in fullscreen mode (lion style) i can't go back in normal mode because when i go to the top of the screen with the mouse there is no menubar anymore and no button for switching from fullscreen in normal mode The problem is solved with uninstalling menupop Please do something about it

Hi Sneferu, Thanks for your feedback. MenuPop has been extensively tested with Lion's fullscreen mode and so far this is the first report of such behavior. If I understand you correctly: You have MenuPop running Say you're using Safari and you switch to fullscreen mode You're in fullscreen mode. Now, MenuPop should behave just fine and pop up with the hot key/mouse button. To go back to regular (non-fullscreen mode), you can either: Pop up the menu using MenuPop and select View|Exit Full Screen or Move your mouse up to the top edge of the screen and the actual menubar will appear (this is a feature of Lion's fullscreen and Apple's fullscreen modes in general). Simply click on the fullscreen icon which is located next to the spotlight (magnifying glass) icon. You can also select View|Exit Full Screen from the actual menu or punch in control-command-F. That's it. This should be the way Lion behaves and MenuPop will -never- attempt to interfere with that. If I'm missing something here, please drop me a line or feel free to discuss it in the Troubleshooting section of MU. Thanks!

This is a very useful little tool for those with a big screen and even more so in case of multiple displays. It allows you to keep your eyes focused on where you are currently working at instead of requiring them, and the mouse pointer, to travel to the top of the main display. This certainly is no big issue for all apps and activities, but for those where it makes a difference, the advantage is significant. Highly recommended!
