Where’s the app Menu on your Mac? If you said, Menubar, you’re correct. Nearly all Mac apps have a menu of selections in the Menubar (not all, but most major apps). Click the Apple icon and make a selection. Click the app’s name in the Menubar, and make selections. That’s the way point and click works on the Mac, right? Is there a better way?

Remember, nothing improves without change. Whether it’s an app, a process, or wine. Improvement requires change. How do you improve on the Mac’s Menubar?
We always know where it is. We always know what it does. How about if you could bring the Mac’s Menubar to the mouse pointer, regardless of where the pointer is on the screen? No more reaching across the screen to the Menubar. The Menubar comes to you.
To get there, you’ll need an elegant app called MenuEverywhere. Wherever your Mac’s mouse pointer is, there’s a Menubar menu for that particular app.
Without moving your hand, or your arm, or the mouse, the Menubar menu for that app comes to the mouse point, wherever it is on the screen. You can have it pop up vertically using a hot key combo. You can change the font size. You can have it pop up using a mouse button.
This is a great tool for saving time and elbow and wrist effort if you have a Mac with a large display, or multiple displays. The Menubar menu comes to you.
Problems? A few. It doesn’t work in every Mac app, but for sure in most major Mac apps. Configuration is a bit complex, with plenty of options for shortcuts, font size, launch, Menubar location, and so, but not so difficult that it should slow you down during setup.
Apple keeps Mac usage simple by placing the app’s menus in the Menubar. All MenuEverywhere does is bring the Menubar to the tip of the mouse pointer, which saves arm movement and wrist action.
