I installed Big Sur on my 2015 MacBook Pro the other day. One area that I wanted to customize was the menubar. There is so much blank space between the icons, it’s a gigantic waste of space and looks awful. Even after installing Bartender 4 to organize my menubar I wanted to move some items to the Control Center for better organization.
Now that I have items in the Control Center, that used to be visible in the menubar, I’ll be accessing Control Center more frequently. Rather than clicking Control Center, I wanted a keyboard shortcut to toggle it open and closed. I did this with a Keyboard Maestro macro.
Credit maxwellj02 for the apple script:
tell application "System Events" tell process "Control Center" tell menu bar item "control center" of menu bar 1 click end tell end tell end tell
By the way, my Big Sur install went perfectly and I haven’t had any issues.
