Running OS X El Capitan (late 2013 iMac). Unfortunately it looks like the "show displays in menu bar" option was removed from System Preferences. Is it possible to get the menu back?
PS - opening the Displays.menu file (/System/Library/CoreServices/Menu Extras/Volume.menu) adds the menu back, but as soon as I click on it, it disappears.
Also, if it's of any relevance, I've got HiDPI mode enabled (but not active). 99% sure it doesn't matter, disabling HiDPI mode didn't affect the issue.
