What is Bartender for Mac

Bartender lets you organize your menu-bar apps by hiding them, rearranging them, or moving them to Bartender's Bar. You can display the full menu bar, set options to have menu-bar items show in the menu bar when they have updated, or have them always visible in Bartender's Bar.

Features:
  • Lets you tidy your menu-bar apps how you want.
  • See your menu-bar apps when you want.
  • Hide the apps you need to run, but do not need to see.
  • Have the clean looking menu bar you want.
  • Rearrange your menu-bar items as you wish.

What's new in Bartender

Version 4.1.7:
Bug Fixes:
  • Multiscreen fixes for Monterey. Some small fixes for setups with multiple screens.
  • 1 Password 8 popup showing when item moved. A workaround specifically for 1 Password 8 has been added.
  • Items becoming unmovable on multiscreen setups. Setups with multiple screens and hidden menu bars (fullscreen apps etc.) could end up with items not being arranged correctly on macOS Monterey, this has been fixed.
  • Some items not moving to correct position in Monterey. This has been fixed.
  • Location menu bar item and Screen Recording not showing in expected positions. This has been improved.
  • Not hiding left menu when needed on Monterey. This has been fixed.
  • Memory leak. There was a slow memory leak effecting a small number of users, this has been fixed.
  • Typos. There was a couple of typos in Bartenders preferences, these have been fixed. thanks all who reported them.

P.S. I didn't mean to give Bartender 0.0 stars! I hope that doesn't factor into its overall rating. Did I miss how one gives star ratings when posting a comment? Evidently so, otherwise I would have assigned five stars.

Quick Tip: If you hold down the Command Key on your Mac, you can click and drag your Menu Bar icons wherever you want. You don't need Bartender to do that. But it will, of course, do much more than just that, and its loyal user base finds all the many features indispensable. I agree with the reviewer below who wonders why Apple hasn't incorporated all of them into macOS. No matter. Until and unless Apple does, Bartender gets the job done beautifully. This is a world-class, reliable Mac developer who always seems to get updates right. Good stuff. -SB

Pretty sure MacUpdate just repeated the previously posted issue with 4.1.3 also being a beta release.

BETA VERSION = "4.1.2"!!! - - Today I wrote to the developer out of confusion. They swiftly replied. Here's what I learned: (1) The version linked here today, "4.1.2" is a test (BETA) version specific to those testing macOS 12 Monterey. That's ALL it is. No one else should bother with it for now! The current public version really is v4.0.48. (2) The Release Notes at the dev site lists "4.1.02". That is a typo. It should read 4.1.2, which again is a BETA version. - -> MacUpdate: PLEASE please provide notification when linking to a BETA version of an app. NO ONE outside of a developer's beta program should be installing betaware. Seriously! OK? Just let us know what you're doing.

Since Apple has inaugurated the Dashboard "Dock and Menus Bar", Bartender is no longer useful.

To MacUpdate: Please note that the latest version is 4.0.48 and NOT 4.1. This is only for Beta testers and some functions are removed. You might want to remove it before other users download it like me and then find out it’s a beta version.

Nicely done, useful and effective. This is one of those "dongle-apps" though: Apple should have included it, did not, now I have to pay for it.

So why is this showing as a new update (4.0.44) when 4.0.46 is there current version as of today?

Never leave home without it! Seriously, this is a must-have app. Not sure why Apple didn't think of it years ago. They would buy this from the developer for lots of cash and integrate it into the OS.

Sorry MU, a stupid question... This is marked as Bartender 4.10.2, and yet the description and downloaded app are stating version 3.1.25, ... your fingers slipped? Well... Anyway version 4 is still in beta testing and will be available only when Big Fur is officially out since it will be the minimum system requirement. hope it helps... ops forgot to state that actually Bartender 4.10.2 Do exists, BUT its a World of Warcraft add-on... go figure
