    When using two screens (laptop and VDU) how can I move the menu bar between the screens?

    Seeing the menu on both displays? I don't know how much experience you have on Macs but I'll start by noting that OS X multiple display behavior, including location of the menu bar, changed in recent years. in normal OS X behavior the menu bar is on every screen.

    I'll tell you how to get it to show on one monitor, but not necessarily the same monitor all the time, and you'll change it back within 15 minutes as that setting completely ruins the use of two monitors for most folks.

    System Preferences>Mission Control and uncheck "Displays have separate Spaces". You'll have to log out and back in for it to take effect.

    In System Preferences, in the Displays pane, in the Arrangement tab, you can drag the menu bar between displays.

    This only applies if you have the Displays have separate spaces option (as described above) off.
