# For users running OS X El Capitan (10.11) or macOS Sierra (10.12), there's a newer version available. Please search for "CustomMenu 3". #
CustomMenu lets you build your own global menu containing your favorite apps, files, and folders. Once created, you can easily open apps and files or browse folders and access their contents from any app with your CustomMenu.
An OS X Dock usually contains running apps, often used apps, files, folders, and minimized windows. By adding items to CustomMenu instead to your dock, you can keep your dock clean and clear but still have them instantly and systemwide accessible.
- Added German localization.
- Other minor tweaks and enhancements.

Nice app! - Does exactly what it says it's going to do. Allows for quick and easy access to folders, apps and remote servers. Allows multiple selection of items to be added. Once added, click and drag to re-order. Far more convenient than the Dock. For some reason I find it easier to go up to the menu insteads of down to the dock. Two quibbles … a customizable icon would be nice. "CM" just doesn't do it for me. I've also noticed it hangs when I access a large number of folders on a remote server.
sounds Ideal, will not run on mac book pro/retina - This sounded like the ideal tool to make my mac even more efficient. It seems to be stuck in an infinte loop of try to configure/customize the menu but it never finishes. Really to bad as it seems like it would be an ideal tool. Just wasted 8 bucks.

Nice app to easly access your files - Very useful app to access your most used files or just to add them all and have them in groups for even easier access! If you want to stay productive and access the files you need to quickly, this is the app for you! You won’t be disapointed! Great app! What would be nice to see that I either haven’t found it or it’s just not there, would be; when adding files that CM will recognize that you have already added it and not add it and give you a popup to let you know that it is already in the group or location you add it. Another one I couldn’t find is the option to alphabetize your groups or your files if you wish. If those two options are not in the app and are added in an update, I’ll give a 5 star review! It’s pretty close now. :) If you want to be productive and tidy, get this app!
Good software - I’m very demanding on the apps I use to do productive work on my Macbook. Easily, 9 out of 10 have much hype, but fall short in what I accept. CustomMenu is good and very useful. I’ve tried other similar software, but for one reason or other they are just not as good. Now I have all my main program shortcuts in it and I do not have to search for them to start them up. It’s Application Switcher is also useful when I’m running a program full screen and want to jump to another one.

It’s Application Switcher is also useful when I’m running a program full screen and want to jump to another one. Another very useful ability is that besides creating a menu of apps you use, you can also create a menu to specific - files - you use. I often make copies of important files used in my work. Problem is that after awhile its easy to make a mistake and open a copy instead of the master file and add to it. So I easily made up a menu that links to the exact main file for each of my apps so I’m sure I’m always working on the respective master version of the file.
My goto App! - I’ve been using CustomMenu for quite a long time now and it has become indispensable in my workflow via the customization of the menu items. A real MUST HAVE for me.
Great utility - Works great and is very useful!
