To download CustomMenu from the Mac App Store, you need a Mac with OS X 10.6.6 or later. Learn More.


By Wolfgang Weber

Open the Mac App Store to buy and download apps.


CustomMenu lets you build your own global menu containing your favorite apps, files and folders. Once created, you can easily open apps and files or browse folders and access their contents from any app with your CustomMenu.

An OS X Dock usually contains running apps, often used apps, files, folders, and minimized windows. By adding items to CustomMenu instead to your dock, you can keep your dock clean and clear but still have them instantly and systemwide accessible.

What's New in Version 2.1.2

- Added German localization.
- Other minor tweaks and enhancements.

Good software

I’m very demanding on the apps I use to do productive work on my Macbook. Easily, 9 out of 10 have much hype, but fall short in what I accept. CustomMenu is good and very useful. I’ve tried other similar software, but for one reason or other they are just not as good. Now I have all my main program shortcuts in it and I do not have to search for them to start them up. It’s Application Switcher is also useful when I’m running a program full screen and want to jump to another one.

Like the old Apple Menu

This is a 5-star app that Apple should integrate with its OS software. It is so easy to mouse to the menu bar to select something and open it. Otherwise you lose your train of thought and rhythm as you mouse down through folders trying to find something. Only problem…and it's a very minor one…the app would be easier to find in the menu bar if an icon were used instead of the letters CM. It gets lost in a busy menu bar.

Amazingly Useful

Custom Menu makes it much easier to open the folders or files I want. I can put folders in the custom menu, and reach the folders, their subfolders, and their files in the menu. I am pretty clumsy, and often have trouble with menus within menus within menus, but haven’t had too much trouble here. I can’t put tags in the custom menu, so if you rely on tags instead of folders, then you might not find this so useful.
