How to Auto-Hide the Menu Bar on a MacBook Pro

And that is why most people like to personalize it with the content that they use the most. However, there are more ways to personalize the menu bar than simply adding your most used applications.

One of these features is that the menu bar can be set to auto-hide itself. This means when the mouse cursor is taken towards the bottom of the homescreen, the menu bar will pop up, and otherwise it will remain hidden. This is a very handy feature for those who want to add that extra bit of space to their homescreen and also not allow the menu bar to be the cause of a distraction.
If you are wondering how to do this, follow the steps below the auto-hide the menu bar in a MacBook Pro:

Step 1

Step 2

Step 4
Go back to the ‘System Preferences’ tray and click on the tab titled ‘General’.

Step 5
Tick the option titled ‘Automatically hide and show the menu bar’.

If you want to reverse this process simply go back and un-tick the option ‘Automatically hide and show the menu bar’ and it should be done. Enjoy this handy feature on your MacBook pro.
