Does anyone know if it is possible to keep the menubar in Mac OS Lion visible for fullscreen apps instead of hidden until hovered over? I imagine there's some Terminal command I can enter to adjust this preference.

Just turn on dock hiding and use the zoom button to maximize window size. –  NReilingh Jul 29 '11 at 4:42
    
Moom or SizeUp would make maximizing easier. Another option is to use homepage.mac.com/khsu/DejaMenu/DejaMenu.html to access the menu bar in full screen applications. I haven't verified that it works in Lion though... –  ridogi Mar 6 '12 at 0:10
    
See apple.stackexchange.com/questions/19160/… The Desktop option is really cool. –  user155933 Sep 2 '12 at 16:52

It would kind of defeat the purpose to call it FullScreen and then allow a way to not make it full screen. The point of full screen is to reduce the distractions, one of which would be the menu bar.

All of the other regular Mac sites are reporting the same thing.
