xBar Main Menu

I'm happy to announce the immediate availability of xBar for Windows - version 2.0.2212.29!

This update includes numerous usability enhancements (popup menus), integrated Search, 21 pre-defined color themes, and more.  I spent a great deal of time fixing issues with rendering (Auto Hide | Show), and how xBar interacts with the Windows Taskbar, this includes when running in multi-monitor mode.

Two new Help topics have been added:

  • Quickly Customize and Use xBar - Accessing & Using the Popup Context Menu
  • Searching for Shortcuts - Using the powerful search tool with filtering
