    Cannot Command-Drag items off the menu bar in OSX 10.6.8
    My menu bar on my Mac is too cluttered. I understand that I can simply command-drag the items off the bar and they'll disappear in a puff of smoke. But it doesn't work on my computer. How come? The operating system is OSX 10.6.8.

    Can anyone help?

    Specs:
    Mid-2012 MBP (16GB, 1TB HD), Monoprice 24-inch second monitor, iPhone 5s 32GB, iPad Air 2 64GB
    Two things:

    1. I think Apple has largely disable that ability. It certainly doesn't work for me.
    2. The *correct* way to de-clutter the menubar is to select the services you don't need and disable them in system preferences or by quitting the associated apps.

    System Preferences - Users - Login Items

    Remove everything there you don't want loading at startup by highlighting and then clicking the - button for each item.
    I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.
    In the Windows world, most everything folks don't understand is called a virus.
