There are many hidden features inside of Mac OS X that require some good “detective skills” to find. One of which is adding an eject button to the menubar. In apps such as: TinkerTool or OnyX, there are options to add an eject button to the menubar, but I like to figure these “hacks” out myself rather than use an application. So, to add an eject button to your menubar:
- Go to the Menu Extras folder, which is located in System >Library >CoreServices.
- Once you find the Menu Extras folder, look for a file called Eject.menu.
- Double click on it, and it will immediately show up in the menubar.
