How to to remove the zoom from menu bar ( Mac)


... beyond quitting


The idea to move the Zoom title as an icon and then put it in the menu bar is very distracting. 

Is there a way to make sure it never is displayed?

just a horrid/arrogant design choice. For you zoom is the most important thing in the world, but not for your users.

You can find under the "Settings" options "Add Zoom to macOS menu bar". You can simply uncheck that option.
