Hide menu bar in VMware Fusion


Hi there!

I was wondering if there was a way to hide the menu bar when the cursor reaches the top of the screen so that it won't pop out?

Use full screen and don't go to the top of the screen? To completely hide the menubar items you'd have to hack that from OS X side. Or just use Fusion full screen and not see it.


Using full screen and not going to the top of the screen is not a solution, since you always need to go to the top of the screen in Windows because that is where the window bar is when the window is maximized. I also find this problem very annoying and haven't found any solution. I've tried editing the info.plist file and adding the LSUIPresentationMode key with a value of 3 which should completely hide the menu bar even if the mouse goes over it as refered at http://developer.apple.com/documentation/MacOSX/Conceptual/BPRuntimeConfig/Articles/PListKeys.html#//apple_ref/doc/uid/20001431-113616 but it still doesn't work. Any ideas on how to do this? Thanks.
