Almost every OSx Application has a service menú like this:

enter image description here

But I've found that my HipChat for MAC doesn't have. I don't know if there is a setting that will enable this menu or it is something related to the way the application was created.

  • Are you talking about the Services menu, or the group of options - hide, hide other, and show?

  • Services, sorry the selected "Show All" could be confused in the screnshot but I am very specific about the Service Menu in the description, thanks Commented Jun 5, 2013 at 15:52
  • Have you tried adding a Keyboard Shortcut for the application in System Preferences/Keyboard/Keyboard Shortcuts/Application Shortcuts ? Odd that HipChat didn't install any Services, I find every app I install is allowed to do so by default, and one must go find and uncheck them. Bad design, Apple. bad.

It has to do with the way the application is created. More about Services in Apple Developer Documentation.

I suggest you direct HipChat Devs to this page.
