For some reason I have two "elephant" icons from Evernote at the top right menu bar. Does anyone know if this is a bug in Evernote or how to remove the extra one?

Additional Information: This problem is still seen after the following steps:

  1. Completely wiping the drive on a Macbook Air
  2. Installing Mountain Lion from scratch
  3. Installing Evernote from the Mac App Store

After installing from the Mac App Store two elephant icons will appear on the menubar.

This question came from our site for power users of web applications.

I had the same problem and resolved it by going to:

System Preferences > Users & Groups > Login Items [for my user]

Then I deleted the EvernoteHelper (select and press the "-" button).

Finally, I unchecked all of the tickboxes under Evernote Helper in Evernote's settings itself, and then re-checked them. Rebooted and only one elephant. Happy days :)

Sounds weird. Have you tried to relaunch Finder? Apple->Force Quit->Finder and click relaunch.

You are likely running a normal install of Evernote, and an App store install of it. You need to startup Evernote (the application), go to Preferences

Then under general uncheck "Start the Evernote Helper when I log in to my computer"

Thank you for your answer - however this is from a new install of Mountain Lion and there is only the Mac App Store version installed. I have updated my question with more details. – Snap Shot Aug 12 '12 at 9:27
