Hi guys,

I'm getting annoyed at the moment, whenever I'm using firefox the menu covers p my Gmail notifier icon in the menu bar.

There's 2 icons that I don't use and if removed I'd be able to see my precious notifier and be able to get to my email withought send all my windows off screen and clicking on the desktop.

Is there any way of removing these icons? The icons in question are the Network Preferences icon and the VPN icon.

Failing being able to remove them is there a way I can shuffle them around so I can see my gmail notifier?

Cheers,
QUOTE Thanks

G'day tom hoyle.

Press and hold Command and click on the icon to either remove as you would from the Dock (poof effect), or just drag to a new position.
