Remove Icons from Mac Menu Bar
The main purpose of the top Menu bar on MacBook is to provide shortcuts or easy access to Apps, Programs and features on your computer.
For example, the Bluetooth Icon located in the top-menu bar (top-right corner) can be used to Enable or Disable Bluetooth on your computer.
While you can continue to use the top-menu bar as arranged by macOS, you can also rearrange and remove Icons from the top-menu bar to suit your own requirements.
