What is MenuPop?

Simply put, MenuPop gives you access to the menu on any screen and on any window using a popup menu activated via hotkey.

Hey, does this thing use any hacks, or other non-standard methods?

MenuPop is not a hack and does not use or rely on any system hacks, nor does it modify your system's core functionality. It relies on standard Apple programming interfaces. Rest knowing that it has been programmed with stability, future-proofing and performance as a requirement.

Why would I need MenuPop?

Mac OS X is an amazing operating system in and of itself. Though if you’ve used more than one screen on Mac OS X you may have noticed how impractical it is to have the menubar on only one monitor.

While keyboard shortcuts can help alleviate the issue, they are not the most satisfactory solution to users who are used to selecting items with the mouse/touchpad rather than the keyboard.

The other issue would be that to go out of your way to select a menu item on another screen takes you away from your point of focus (the working window). MenuPop simply gives you the menu right there on your working window when and where you need it.

Does it work with all Mac OS X applications?

MenuPop works very well with most programs. Issues may arise in applications that do not properly supply menu information.

What’s the difference between MenuPop and MenuEverywhere?

MenuPop only shows the menu via a popup menu; MenuEverywhere on the other hand, has a whole lot more, including a full horizontal menubar on each window.

Do you have a 10.5 version?

Unfortunately, nope. However, MenuEverywhere will be available in a 10.5-compatible version soon. If you’d like to be notified, please send me an email.

How do you install/uninstall MenuPop?

Simply drag it to your Applications folder to install. To uninstall, drag it from the Applications folder to the trash.
