View Full Version : Option key + Top Menu bar = Mixed up spacing

Dec 8, 2012, 02:50 PM
I accidentally was clicking on the Volume icon on the top menu bar of OSX and it added extra spacing between all of the top icons (Wifi signal, user, volume, Time Machine, etc.). Unfortunately I did it a few times and now they have these crazy spaces between them that is driving me crazy. Does anyone know any easy way to bring them back together? I have tried looking through system preferences but I cannot find anything.

Can you provide a screenshot of what you're seeing? Holding the option key when clicking on a menu bar item should just bring up extended information. Holding the command key and then clicking and dragging allows you to move items around in the menu bar, but shouldn't affect the spacing. I've tried clicking and dragging with both, but I can't get any adjustment in spacing... so I'm just wondering if perhaps you've shifted an icon and now aren't used to the ordering.
