Window Previews

All your windows

Find the window you’re looking for at a glance. If an application has more than one window, you’ll know right away. Click that application to open the window menu, which allows you to bring any window or even just the application itself to focus. You can turn window grouping off, and all your individual windows will be shown right in uBar. You can even enable windows previews so that when you hover the pointer above an app you can preview of all it’s windows (depicted above).

Dock or task bar

The Dock was great when it was released in 2001. Today, you need more power and more functionality. uBar can be configured as a dock or task bar for macOS.

Multi-monitor support

Multiple-monitor support

Creative professionals, developers, and power-users often make use of multiple-monitor setups. Only uBar lets you take full advantage of that setup. When you set uBar to display on all your screens, by default each screen will have it’s own bar, which will only display the apps and/or windows associated with that screen. Alternatively, you can turn-on Mirror mode and see the same bar on every screen. Either way, you’ll finally be able to take full advantage of your pro setup.
