    I have seen pictures with people customizing the menu bar, how do you add things to the menu bar?

    What did you want to place in the menu bar? Some applications have the option to add a shortcut to the menu bar. You can hold down command and use the mouse to switch the placement of items in the menu bar.

    Well I knew there was an option on some apps, but I am not sure where to find it.

    I don't get a Dock icon with MenuCalanderClock. Have you tried pulling it off the Dock?
