First, click the Apple logo in the upper left-hand corner.
Now, select "System Preferences" from the drop down.
Click "Dock & Menu Bar" to bring up the Menu Bar preferences.
Lastly, make a choice about when you want your Mac's Menu Bar to "hide and show." The options for hiding and showing your Menu Bar are as follows:
- Automatically hide and show the Menu Bar on desktop- this option means your normal desktop won't bring up your Menu Bar unless you bring your cursor to the top of the screen.
- Automatically hide and show the Menu Bar in full screen- this option means when in full screen, the Menu Bar will not appear until you bring your cursor to the top of the screen.
By default, these two options are generally off. You can decide to select both, just one, or neither. Once you have made your selection, enjoy using your newly customized Menu Bar!

Because your MacBook is so important for all that you do in a day, it is important to take good care of your Mac battery, monitor your Mac's battery health, and check the cycle count of your Mac's battery when to determine if your Mac needs a new battery. This might sound like a lot of maintenance, but checking your Mac's cycle count is an easy way to determine if your Mac needs a new battery, and it's actually incredibly simple. A battery's maximum cycle count is how many charge cycles your Mac can complete before the battery is no longer able to perform and will need replacing. In this guide, I show you how to check your Mac battery's cycle count and determine if your battery needs to be replaced.
