10.5: Get rid of the translucent menu bar
Authored by: jdoyle on Nov 16, '07 05:56:17AM

I have a much easier way to do this that involves no system tweaks.

Choose your desktop of choice.

Open in photoshop.

Place a strip of white with a subtle black to white gradient on it across the top the exact size that the menu bar is.

Choose this as you desktop. Voila! No more transparent menu bar!

You forgot the rest:

Connect your portable Mac to an external monitor where the menu bar is on a different screen.

Enjoy the glaring white bar across the top of your secondary screen.

No thanks, I'll take the simple plist edit.
