The Menu Bar on the top of your Mac’s screen is a really useful tool. It provides access to:

  • System Functions,
  • Shortcut to recently-used apps,
  • App menus, etc.

Well, apart from all the good things, it also takes a sufficient amount of screen on your screen. And if you have a small screen, you will definitely like to say no to the Menu bar.

Let me tell you one secret: You can automatically hide the Menu bar. There is a setting that displays the Menu Bar only when you hover your mouse to the upper part of your display.
