Hide the Menu Bar

If you like your screen as clean and empty of distractions as possible, then check out the “Automatically hide and show the menu bar” setting in System Preferences, General. This is new for El Capitan. When turned on, the menu bar at the top of your screen will only appear if you move the cursor up there.

    But how do I ‘undo’ the “Automatically hide and show the menu bar”? Even when I turn off the option… the menu bar stays hidden, unless I move the cursor up there. Do I have to perform a restart?

      It should turn off as easily as it turns on. Try turning it on and then off again (ha!) and then maybe try a restart.
