    Hi,


    By default the macOS has the 'Notification Center' icon fixed to the top menu bar.

    I have searched the whole internet and tried all suggested softwares to try and remove the notification center icon from the menu bar, but none of the softwares are able to remove it. The closest resolution seems to be to disable the notification center (through a terminal command), but that's not enough as I wish to completely get rid of the icon and the feature itself. I visually need this icon to go away so something else can take its place on the top right corner of the screen.

    Is there anyone who's got this figured through a script or something? Highly appreciate your help.

    I'm using a macOS Mojave 10.14.

    even the app 'bartender' (which, in earlier OSes, had that option), no longer does (have that option). i'm curious about this too; curious, but not optimistic...

    Some apps can be removed or rearranged by holding down the CMD key when clicking the app icon - this does not seem to work with notifications - but you can turn the notifications off by pulling down with the mouse and selecting the "Do not Disturb" option

    It won't remove the icon but the banners and alerts will be deactivated.

    Yea. The question remains... how to completely get rid of the icon?

    I'm sure there's a way or script that can do it. Need a super mac expert on this, the usuals won't do.

    am pretty sure it's not do-able (at least, the bartender people say so), it's buried too deep in the OS. but will keep an eye on this thread in case...
