Mac OSX question (novice)

When responding, please speak slowly & distinctly.Use words that any 60 year old can understand.
I recently loaded OSX.6. There is an icon on the right side of the menu bar I’d like to get rid of. Its an Apple Scripts icon. Why is it there and can I get rid of the icon?

Easy. Hold down your Command key (the one right next to the spacebar with the apple on it) and drag the AppleScript icon off the menu bar.

If you want to get it back, look in the Applications folder on your hard drive. You should have a folder called AppleScript. Inside that folder is an item called “Script”. Double-click that, and the menu will reappear.

Thank you. You used perfect old lady language! :slight_smile:

And It worked!!

Well, I’m not sure why it’s there . . . on my system, I had to put it there myself (I subsequently removed it after finding I hardly used it), and it didn’t seem like the kind of thing that could be enabled accidentally. But computers is computers, as I’m sure you well know.

Anyway, to remove it, just hold down the command key (AKA the Apple key) and drag the icon off the menu bar. You can also use this command-drag technique to move most menubar icons (and even the menubar clock) around to suit your preference.

An excellent resource is

Hope this helps!

Dang, Max beat me to it! Now how am I gonna get my OS X scout badge?

Its Ok, Hoops I need all the help I can get. Actually, it was my husband’s question, he’s too “manly” to ask.
I’m sure he got it because he didn’t know what the “scripts” was, so he double clicked it. He regularly breaks his computer, so he can try to fix it. (The local Mac Store gets lots of business) :wink:
