I like the idea of having a second menu bar in OS X Mavericks for when you have a second monitor plugged into your Mac, however, I don’t particularly like Apple’s implementation of this feature.
It’s distracting. The opaque menu bar signifying inactivity is a real eye-sore. Why not just make it fully solid and therefore less distracting? And how come I don’t have the option to control whether it’s solid or opaque?
There is a solution – turn it off.
How to disable the second menu bar in OS X Mavericks: Click on System Preferences > Mission Control > Un-tick “Displays have separate Spaces”. Once your restart your Mac, you will have just a single menu bar. Done.
