    Does anyone know how I can get rid of the Mobile Me sync icon that recently made an appearance on my menu bar and now refuses to leave? I don't even use Mobile Me so I have no idea how the icon got there and I can't find any way to disable it. Thanks.

    System Preferences --> MobileMe --> Sync tab then tick off Show status in menu bar ;)

    Even easier, hold down the command button on the keyboard and drag it off the menu bar. You can do that with any other one that is annoying you.

    Yeah I love Apple + click/drag, makes me feel powerful, haha.

    Both methods work well, you can choose either!

    Sweet

    The click and drag is a cool little trick I didn't know about. Thanks for both suggestions!!

    I know this is an old thread but I just had this problem also....thankfully I googled it and found a thread about....

    I wonder how it gets there. I don't have a MM account and there is no way to uncheck anything in system prefs about the sync tab...just has a login in button area and sign up/learn more.

    If in iCal, Address book, or mail you have allowed sync with your gmail/yahoo account it uses the same sync agent thing that puts the menu bar icon up there....
