GlobalProtect problem on Mac when menu bar icon is hidden

L0 Member

I just upgraded from an older MacBook Pro to a newer one. The new MacBook has a smaller menu bar, due to a built-in camera that is housed in a "display notch", which hides part of the menu bar. See https://www.macrumors.com/how-to/hide-notch-macbook-pro/

The menu bar displays fewer icons, so some icons are simply "hidden". For apps like GlobalProtect, this is a *big* problem. Without access to the GlobalProtect icon, the user has no way to make GlobalProtect do a "connect" or "disconnect".

 

One work-around for this is to make sure you move the GlobalProtect icon over to the left side of the menu bar, so that it is always visible even on small displays. Otherwise, you won't be able to use GlobalProtect. Other choices involve installing third-party apps to handle the menu bar more flexibly.

Ooops, I meant "move the GlobalProtect icon over to the right side of the menu bar", not the left side.
