how can i get rid of the "stuffit" icon on my menu bar in finder without uninstalling he app?
Look in the app's preferences.
Or just drag it out of menu bar with (cmd) pressed on kbd.
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.
nothing in prefs!
...and did command-drag work?
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.
i dont want to unistall it i just want to deactivate it from staring at login
you must mean "login items" right? thanx my friend
Ok. Not sure how we got from point A to point B, but hope you figured out how to do what you want to do.
Arne, i was wrong i thought it would be it but checking it today, this wasnt the solution, any other ideas?
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.
its not in the log in items at all!
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.
im not launching anything, icon is displayed up there when system starts, not stuffit launched!
ok guys, i got it, i deleted if from the start up items, i thought that checking the checkbox would do the job, but no, i had to delete it from the list and all is fine, thank you everyone!
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
