OS 10.3 - Invisible Menu Bar Item

Post Reply New Thread Subscribe

I am using OX 10.3.9 and I need to help on finding the location modules in the menu bar. I have a menu bar item that does not have an icon (it appears as empty space on the menu bar) but when it is clicked on it says I don't have an Airport card installed and at the bottom it has the option of opening Network Prefernces (which it does).

However, right next to the missing item is the actual Airport menu. It functions quite well and as intended.

I attempted to resolve the issue by turning off the menu bar icon in Network Prefernces. The invisible menu bar item remains.

I think this glitch or whatever it may be is a result from installing KisMac. But uninstalling the KisMac did not solve the issue.

Any suggestions is nice, and I am fairly advance in Macintosh systems (I just don't know where this item came from and how to get rid of it).

Well, a start would be the location of said Menu Items, which is:


The one you're referring to is the Airport Menu Extra.

I try to Command+Shift+/ when I can.

Thanks. That is where I thought it would be but I wasn't sure which one of .menu files would control that menu.
