    Hi,

    I know you can remove Apple menulets from the menubar by holding the command key and dragging the icons off..

    But for third party applications without a "hide menulet" option: is there a way to manually remove/hide the menulet? (To be specific: I'm not talking about simply replacing the menulet with a transparent png, I'm talking full removal but the program is still running in the background)

    Which menulet from which program are you specifically referring to? Most programs have preferences to turn off those menulets.

    Third-party menulets that are implemented the "correct" way don't get the ability to be moved around via Cmd+drag, so unless there's an option in the app's preferences to hide the menubar icon, I think you're pretty much SOL.

    Correct, unless there's options in the Menulets prefs then there is no way to remove them without quitting the actual menulet.

    I guess the other way—which might not help much—is uninstall the program the menulet is associated with.
