10.4: How to disable the Spotlight menu
Authored by: pr10n on May 05, '05 01:16:59AM

I gave Kraven0825's suggestion a try with mixed results.

I replaced each of the following files with a single pixel transparent tiff:

  • MDSearchWidget_Normal-1.tiff
  • MDSearchWidget_Normal-6.tiff
  • MDSearchWidget_Pressed-1.tiff
  • MDSearchWidget_Pressed-6.tiff

The result was a missing search bar button as expected but the real estate is still allocated. So now all the remaining items appear offset to the left.

Search.bundle menu space

Also notice that if you disable the entire bundle, you lose the rounded upper right corner of the menu bar and a little bit of horizontal padding between the edge of the screen and the right-most menu icon.

Hopefully Apple will soon (within 10.4.x) add an official method for disabling the menu icon that retains the rounding of the menu bar.
