How To: Mac X Multiple Menu Bars

For users using with multiple displays with their Mac OS X computer, you can install a 3rd party tool to allow your default Mac X Menu Bar across every monitor you have. Keep in mind, since the release of Mac OS X Mavericks 10.9, you can allow your menu bar across multiple screens.


For previous versions of Mac X 10.9, you can install SecondBar here.

Note: You can install and use SecondBar on the latest version of Mac X, however it remains unsupported.
