I have a requirement to hide specific icon in menu bar (McAfee icon). Tried using "LSUIPresentationMode" in info.plist but still the icon is visible. Any other way to achieve this?

  • Hi, welcome to Ask Different. Which McAfee software does the icon belong to? Isn't there a setting in Preferences to toggle displaying the icon (many apps offer such a setting)? Could you provide the full path to the Info.plist file you modified?

To remove an icon from the status bar:

  • Hold down cmd
  • Click the icon you want to remove and drag it to the desktop (A cross icon should appear)
  • Let go of the left mouse button
