Terminal command to reload apple menu when it freezes

September 19, 2012

Sometimes the apple UI top bar menu will freeze, god willing, not all that often, but when it does it's handy to know what to do force it to reload.

Simply pop open a terminal window and run this command:-

killall SystemUIServer
