    Not a biggie. Thanks Gary, for all the stuff you do here and everywhere else. I had a “Show Emoji & Show Keyboard Viewer Symbols” shortcut in the top menu bar before installing Big Sur. How can I remove that shortcut now? I don’t see it in system pref’s under keyboard or under accessibly controls. I didn’t see it in the control center either. Maybe I missed something, Thanks.

    Russ: Do you mean: System Preferences, Keyboard, Input Sources, Show Input menu in menu bar?

    Yes! It was there under system pref’s –>Keyboard–>Input Sources! Thanks! You are the King! I bow before you…

    Gary, enlightening, informative and useful presentation as always. Since installing Big Sur my menu bar is considerably smaller than it was before and much smaller than the one shown in the presentation. Is there an adjustment some where to determine its size?

    Ray: I’m using the standard menu bar. But my screen resolution is set to 2560×1440 (720p x2) to make it perfect for sharing video captures. You probably have yours set to your native resolution. Go to System Preferences, Displays and use a scaled setting to get it larger.

    Hello! Is there any shortcut to bring up control center? Seems like either a missing (and welcome) feature or something I’m missing. Please and thank you

    Jotta: No. I think I mention that in the video. The reason there isn’t a shortcut is that you have to control the items there with the cursor. So brining it up with a shortcut as step one, wouldn’t make any sense.
