    What app are you trying to remove from the menu bar?

    What is the App? Does it have a preference pane where you can choose it to show (or not) in Menu Bar? Is it in yur log in items in your user options?

    If that is your internet connection, then why would you want to remove it?

    This app is for mobile broadband.. Not my main internet connection. It is to have internet connection from usb stick via 3G.. ..But i dont want to have the icon in my menu bar all the time .. This appears all the time.. even i use my wi-fi connection from my house.

    Then go to system preferences and remove it from your network preferences. Or simply untick Show In Menu Bar.

    System Preferences > Networks > Choose the Mobile Broadband Connection on the left and then near the bottom uncheck Show Modem Status In Menu Bar.

    No idea then. Works for me. Sorry. Someone else might have some idea. Still can't see why you want to remove it for if you use it though.

     

    Good luck. Over and out.

    The app is usefull only when i use the usb stick with sim card to connect via 3G. (when i am in holidays away from my home) The most times i connect to the internet via wi-fi in my house.. In this case the app is useless and i dont want to see the app in Menu Bar all the time. I try to keep my menu bar clear from many apps.. Anyway thanx

    One last thought, go to System Preferences > Users and Groups > Click on Admin User or whatever user Account you use > Login Items and if the app is in the start up items then disable it or delete it.

     

    Good Luck

    Try Command clicking on it and drag it out from the menu bar.
