The macOS Menu Bar is a place where you can find essential controls for apps. It also hosts the notification center, the control center, and other important functions. Plus, it’s an iconic element of Mac’s history.
However, It’s sometimes quite annoying to have to hover the pointer to the top of the screen while in full-screen mode and see the macOS Menu Bar juggle itself in front of your eyes, unable to decide whether it wants to appear or not.
It’s also counter-productive. When in full-screen mode, macOS, by default, hides the dock as well as the Menu Bar so as to offer optimum immersion. The Menu Bar, for one, only re-appears when you hover your pointer over to the top of your Mac’s display. The delay in responsiveness due to macOS system animations might slow you down, especially if you interact with the Menu Bar often.
That is poised to change with macOS Monterey, Apple’s latest operating system for Mac. One of the little-known improvements is that you can now make the Menu Bar stick into one place even in full-screen mode.
No more wobbly behaviour, that is.
How do you do that? It’s simple and involves un-ticking a checkbox.
