Life is short. So, we need to be efficient about our everyday tasks. For example, how often do you move the mouse pointer all the way across the screen just to click on a Menubar item?
For most Mac users, trackpad or Magic Mouse, that simple act is performed hundreds of times a day.
More experienced Mac users may opt to use keyboard shortcuts, but remembering more than a dozen or two of the shortcuts in a dozen different apps, my brain begins to freeze.
There is a better way and it’s called MenuMate. This elegant, inexpensive Mac app brings each app’s Menubar menus right to the tip of your mouse pointer, wherever it is on the Mac’s screen.
No more moving the mouse pointer from one end of the screen way up to the Menubar just to select a menu option. MenuMate brings the Menubar to the pointer. This is what it looks like.
It’s like having the Mac’s entire Menubar right on the tip of the mouse pointer.
How do you get it to work? Simple add a hotkey combo or assign the option to a mouse button. When you click the right keys, the Menubar pops up onscreen wherever the mouse pointer happens to be.
It’s an instant menu right at your fingertips.
This may not seem as handy for an 11-inch MacBook Air which has a relatively small screen, but it’s to die for on larger MacBook models, and is absolutely heavenly on Macs with large screens or multiple screens.
You save time and motion and effort by bringing the Menubar for each app to the mouse, rather than moving the mouse or trackpad pointer to get to the menu selections.
