How To Make TextExpander Run Invisibly In The Background On Mac

  1. In TextExpander, choose Profile > Preferences > Appearance, check the option for “Hide TextExpander icon in Dock.” The TextExpander icon will no longer take up Dock space, but a small TextExpander icon can appear in the menu bar, should you need it.
  2. There are a variety of shortcuts you can set in Preferences > Hotkey to quickly perform actions without clicking on the menu bar item. If you do not show TextExpander in the menu bar, we highly recommend adding a Hotkey for “Open TextExpander” to have some way to access TextExpander.
