MainMenu Pro is a program that sits on your status bar and provides you with a quick and simple solution for optimizing the performance of your system. An integrated help manual will teach you how to easily handle the app's built-in tools, so, you don't need much computer experience in order to work with this utility.

The built-in utilities are listed on the main window of the application as well as within its main menu from the status bar. You can use this program to free up disk space, manage clippings, securely delete files from your computer, find large files, and so much more. Each of the aforementioned tasks take a small amount of time to complete. Plus, the app doesn't slow down the performance of your Mac while finishing the given tasks.

Another great thing about this app is the fact that you can define a global hotkey for immediately revealing its main screen. So, you don't need to move your mouse cursor to your status bar or Dock to access the program's built-in features.

Unlike the standard version of this program, it gives you access to options to immediately repair disk permissions, erase free space on all volumes, clean user cache data, etc. Hence, it's definitely worth buying the pro version of the app, even if it's a bit more expansive than the standard variant.

The one thing you need to take into consideration while working with this tool is that its "Show Invisible Files" option changes the current locations in the Finder windows. MainMenu Pro will restart the Finder app and reopen all of its windows with the default Home folder. This aspect might prove to be quite annoying especially if you have multiple Finder screens on your desktop, with different folder locations, and you want to continue from where you left off.

In conclusion, MainMenu Pro is an effective and simple to handle Mac program that helps you boost up the performance of your system.

I've been using this reliable little app for years. I use it primarily for cleaning the cache. It remains stable through at least 5 iterations of MacOS, right up to Sonoma, which I'm using now.
