When I upgraded to Mac OS Lion, I didn’t notice this ‘Sync Now’ icon. But it appeared on my Menubar soon after. I didn’t really care about it because later I realized it helps me to manually sync’ed with my Google Apps contents (i.e.:Address book (Google Contacts)).
Well, to remove it from the Menubar is easy. Command (⌘)+ Click on the icon and drag it off the Menubar. Done!
How do you get it back??!
Here’s what I did.
Open the Address Book’s Preferences. On Account, click Configure. And then click “OK”. And the Sync Now icon back on your Menubar.
Remember, when you click on Configure; continue to click “OK”. Should you choose to click “Cancel”, your Preferences will automatically assumed that you no longer want to synchronize with Google.
