The Hazel Status Menu

Hazel’s menu bar icon gives you immediate indication of its status, plus quick access to some of its functions, such as starting/stopping and running rules manually.

The icon has two states to indicate Hazel’s status:

  • A dark   icon means Hazel is running.

  • A light   icon means Hazel is stopped.

Click the icon to display a menu that lets you quickly access other functions:

The status menu is enabled by default. To enable or disable it, go to Hazel > “Preferences” > “General” and select or deselect “Show Hazel in the menu bar.”

Note:  The Hazel status menu does  not  have to be running for Hazel rules to function.
