Dealing with transparency in "Find Image on Screen"


I’m trying to select an icon on OS X El Capitan status bar but whenever I change my background, since the status bar adopt itself to the background then the action cannot detect the image/icon in the status bar. I’m wondering if there is any trick over this. I know that not changing the background will solve the problem but just curious if there is a general way to fix this. I’ve even exported the app’s icon to transparent png and tried that but it’s not possible to select it either. Any suggestion?


Hey Amir,

The only way is to reduce transparency.

System Prefs > Accessibility > Display > Reduce transparency

Depending upon your menu-bar-app it might be possible to script the click with GUI-Scripting.

What app is it?
