If you enjoy Forehead, you will probably also like Vivid, which lets you double the brightness on your new MacBook Pro! Use code 'FOREHEAD' to get 10% off when you purchase a license for Vivid.

Apple announced the new MacBook Pro yesterday, and I can't wait to receive mine next week. I saw some people complain about the notch (I like it but tastes differ), so I made a little utility that makes the menu bar black so the Notch fades away in the background.

The app takes your wallpaper and modifies it to add a black bar at the top. It also allows you to round the corners of your screen if you're into that look!


  • Switch between your default wallpaper and a notchless one
  • Round the corners of your entire screen (similar to the rounded top corners on the new Macs)
  • Choose to start the rounding below the menu bar
  • Works on Monterey
