Hey guys...really trivial problem here, but it is kinda annoying. I just changed my battery icon to show only the icon (not percentage or time left) and it bumped my clock in between the airport icon and the battery icon (as opposed to between battery and the spotlight icon, where it was)

Here is a pic to show you:



Is there a way to fix this? I tried dragging it but obviously that just opened the menu for the clock. Thanks for the help ahead of time

Hold down the Command key and drag the icons to rearrange them.

As a note, holding command down and dragging only works with Apple menu items. Ex. it won't work on adium or any third party menu bar items.
As a note to that note, :) I'm pretty sure those load right to left...so you can rearrange the ones you have load automatically by rearranging the order in which they load in System Preferences.

Correct but they will only show up after the Apple menu bar icons. I'm not sure why Apple hasn't fixed this yet.
