MenuPop

MenuPop 1.6

It gives you easy access to the menu bar of the app you're working with.
 
1.6.1 (See all)

Accessing the main menu of an application on a large monitor might prove to be quite annoying. For this reason, programs like MenuPop were created. This utility gives you access to the main menu of any Mac application you're working with in just a few moments.

The first thing you need to do is to define a global hotkey. This shortcut key will be used to immediately reveal the main menu of the app you're currently using on your Mac. You can always change the hotkey if necessary by going to the Preferences panel of the program.

In my testing, I tried to access the main menu of the Finder app (Mac's default file manager). I simply clicked over an empty area from my desktop and pressed the selected key combination. MenuPop revealed the information I needed almost instantly.

A great aspect is the fact that you can choose which information to be displayed in the revealed main menu. For instance, you can include the system menu (the one that's displayed when clicking the apple-shaped icon from your Menu Bar).

Another advantage is that you can configure MenuPop to automatically launch at system login.

To conclude, you should buy this utility for your Mac if you wish to increase your productivity. It's efficient, simple to use, and cheap.
