Editors' Review

Bartender allows you to control more of the icons at the top of your computer's menu bar, including system icons that are typically off limits, making it a very useful app for those with limited space. Sitting in the menu bar, itself, Bartender is low profile and uses minimal memory to perform basic functions like hiding icons, moving them into the separate Bartender menu, and setting notifications to show the items only when necessary.

Installation of Bartender is easy and fast, though the app will need to install a secondary file in the background to run properly. After this is done, however, you can open the Preferences menu and start managing your icons. The system icons will be separated from the running icons and for each you can choose where it shows up, if it is visible, and whether it will appear when a change is made that affects it. You could, in effect, remove all of the icons from the menu bar if you so choose, having them appear only when something changes and you need to see the icon. It is fast and easy to access all of these menus, the changes happen instantly, and we noticed no slowdown or battery life loss as you'll see with some menu bar managers.

If you want to control how and when your icons appear in the menu bar, consider downloading Bartender for Mac. It's fast and easy to set up and offers a range of options to keep your menu bar under control. It is free to try with the trial version, allowing you to get a full feel for how it works with a variety of different icons.

Editors' note: This is a review of the trial version of Bartender for Mac 1.2.11.
