    How can I get the Activity Monitor results to show in the Menu Bar at the top of the screen?

    Also there is a way of selecting which items show and how they appear.

    Anyone know how?

    The View>Dock Icon command shows the various stats you can have the Dock Icon show, but AFAIK you can't have Activity Monitor display in the menu bar. There are probably numerous third party programs that can do that, though.

    Also, under Window>Show Floating CPU Window...you can show that at move that window towards the top of the screen, but it won't be in the menu bar.

    This program looks like what you might want. I use the widget version and it is very good.

    You are looking for Menu Meters. It allows you to constantly view CPU usage, Network Use, Memory Allocation, and HD use.
