    You should be able to command-drag them out no problem. If you can't, the <...> icon can be turned off in System Preferences>Sharing, I believe, and the sync icon in iSync preferences.

    What is a shame, though, is that some menu bar items can't be moved.

    Unless I'm mistaken, I can't seem to move my Weather Dock menu item at all - which isn't a problem at all, but I'd like to be able to move it a tiny bit.

    I installed a printer a couple of months ago and it installed an icon on the top. I uninstalled it but the icon never went away. I tried to do what you guys explain here, but I still can't remove it.

    How can i do?:(
