    That only works with the Apple apps up there.

    Not true. Menu bar applications that are coded properly, like iStat Menus, have the same drag off ability as stock menu bar icons.

    havent checked the drag option yet, but even if it would work, it would remind me of the dock where all the icons up there are links and not the actual apps, so nothing important would be acomplished since you would delete just an icon... what do you say?

    I'd say I thought that's what you wanted to do.

    In the System prefs under "User" or "Accounts" (dont know what exactly it is called in english OS X) you will find a tab that says "Startup Objects" or something like that. There you can deactivate the startup of Stuffit.

    Wait, so you took it off login items but it still starts up when you log in? Unlikely.


    It's probably an option in the application preferences.

    Isn't there a custom install option not to install Stuffit Menu? Pretty sure there used to be that.

    Are you opening stuffit manually? I'm sure that when stuffit is launched the icon is put in the menu.

    The checkbox is for hiding applications.

    Have you tried to two finger click the icon on the menu bar? Sometimes a small option menu drops down from the icon with the option to remove it from the menu bar. Worth a shot..

    Nevermind, you figured it out :D
