Mac: If you have a giant screen or you tend to work on multiple desktops, the menu bar on your Mac might feel miles away. MenuMate's a simple app that lets you pull up everything on an app's menu bar with a keyboard shortcut. The idea here is simple: Your menu bar is way up at the top of the screen, but sometimes you need quick access to things that don't have keyboard shortcuts. With MenuMate, everything in the menu bar is essentially turned into a contextual menu that pops up next to your cursor when you tap a keyboard shortcut. From there, you can select whatever you need just like you would in the actual menu bar. Of course, you've always been able to get to your Mac's menu bar with a keyboard shortcut, but who wants to tap Ctrl+FN+F2? If you want to give it a test drive, the developer has a 10 minute demo available on their site.
