10.7: Dual Monitor full-screen app trick
Authored by: octa on Oct 04, '11 05:35:28PM

Further to this. It has always annoyed me is that when I'm in a full screen app, like Apple Mail, the menu bar is hidden, so therefore I can't see the time. I know I can just lift my mouse to the top and the Apple menu bar appears. What I did instead is download "Simple Floating Clock", a free app, chose the settings as digital clock, placed it as far top on the main screen, and quit it. Then I used the hint on this page and opened the app, then I can move it to an empty spot in the Apple Mail toolbar. I can now see the time whilst I'm reading/writing emails.

If I was "programming" inclined, I would write an Apple Mail Extension or plug-in that adds a toolbar item which displays the current time.

Honest question.... If you want to be full screen and still see the menu bar... why not just Maximise the window?
