Menu Extras in OS X Leopard

Did you know that you can have extra menus in the upper right of your Menu bar? Like menus for Remote Desktop, Spaces, and more. Some of these menus are slightly hidden from sight, so you have to explore a bit to find them.

Adding is very easy. First, go to System / Library / CoreServices / Menu Extras. Once there, you can see different names indicating what kinds of Menu Extras are available to add. Double clicking one of the files will automatically add on the menu feature to your main menu.

Removing is a little easier. All you have to do is hold down one of the Command keys and drag the Menu Extra off as you would an icon in the Dock. You will see the Menu Extra vanish the same way you would see an item disappear in the Dock.
