Editors' Review

MenuEverywhere helps power users--and anyone else with multiple monitors, or just a very large monitor--get quick access to an application's menu bar, from any window or any screen.

MenuEverywhere works in the background, with a slim CPU footprint and an extensive set of preferences to control its appearance and behavior. You can set MenuEverywhere to put a complete menu bar on the top of every window associated with an app (for example, the Photoshop menu bar on every Photoshop window, no matter which monitor the window appears in), or you can have it just place a single "Menu" button on the top of each window, with the other menu bar headers nested underneath in drop-down menus. You can have the button (or buttons) visible all the time, or invisible until you mouse over them, and you can also have additional menus only appear on secondary monitors. Probably the coolest feature in MenuEverywhere (especially for keyboard-addicted power users) is the ability to invoke an app's menu bar with a hot key or a programmed mouse button, at the current mouse location--which you can then browse through and use with your arrow keys. An optional ignore list lets you exclude certain apps from MenuEverywhere.

Most users won't find a need for MenuEverywhere, but for those who do, this app can be a tremendous time-saver (and a welcome relief for overworked mousing muscles). Recent updates have made the app's performance even faster and smoother.

"A must have add-on"

October 10, 2011  |  By hoggdoc

 |  Version: MenuEverywhere 1.9.49

Pros

Easy to configure and use, price is right, fixes something that OSX should have years ago.

Cons

Sometimes there is a lag in the MENU button when you move a window. Its no big deal but something the developer should address

Summary

Once you instal and use this a few times you'll wonder what you did with out it.

"The missing link that OSX should have built-in"

August 20, 2011  |  By hoggdoc

 |  Version: MenuEverywhere 1.9.46

Pros

I have nothing but positive things to say about the APP. I use it daily, whether on a second monitor or when I have multiple windows open. It is a real time saver not having to always return to the Apple menu bar all the time.

Cons

Nothing to say but it's great

Summary

Everyone should buy this APP, once to use it you can't do without it

"Great Idea, Terrible Implemtation"

July 30, 2011  |  By Siskel & Ebert

 |  Version: MenuEverywhere 1.9.3

Pros

Love having Menu in second monitor.

Cons

DOES NOT LOOK LIKE APPLE QUALITY AT ALL, the font looks different, the spacing is near-random, some text is truncated or overly spaced.

Summary

I've sent screen shots to the developer several times, e-mailed him, and he agreed, but never fixed anything. If it looks like crap, the code is probably just as good. Sorry, I gave-up on on this amateur developer. I think I even paid $15 for this and did not request a refund yet.

How hard can it be to make the menubar text look just like Apple's???

Feels like a hack from an 8-year-old chinese kid.

@hoggdoc you're a <*>f</*><*>u</*><*>c</*><*>k</*><*>i</*><*>n</*><*>g</*> baby, what does "knowing how hard writing software" have to do with delivering substandard hacks and SELLING them for $15. You and this developer should stay in the shallow-end of the pool until you can keep up with the big kids. Get a life you whiney baby! Geesh!
