I have two annoying icons in my menu bar. The first I have no clue at all. If I try to click on it, the pointer changes to the "waiting coloured ball". The second one relates to Malwarebytes that I deleted for I didn't trust. I would like these two "intruders" out of my way. Does anybody know how? Thanks your help Manuel
If you simply want to remove the icons from the menu bar, you can ⌘-Click the icons and then drag them out of the menu bar, one at a time. Be sure to drag them down far enough so a little ⓧ icon appears on the cursor.
However, that doesn't uninstall whatever application put them in the menu bar in the first place. If you want to uninstall the original application, you'll need to figure where the menu bar items came from.
You can use the Accessibility Inspector tool to start to understand which applications originally installed the menu bar icons. Follow the instructions from this Ask Different Q&A for how to use Accessibility Inspector. Essentially, it comes down to:
- Clicking the crosshair/reticle button in the toolbar
- Clicking the menu bar icon in question
SHOWin the Accessibility Inspector's Hierarchy section
From there, you should be able to search around online for instructions on how to uninstall a specific application.
