Rearrange menu bar icons

Here is a quick video showing you how icons in the menu bar can be moved and removed.

If you want to move the icons, hold down the command key while dragging the icons with your mouse. To remove an icon simply drag it to the desktop. Restoring an icon to the menu bar is handled by the application that provides the icon (i.e., the Time Machine preferences has an option to show an icon in the status area.)
