    If you’ve seen Apple’s new MacBook Pro (2021), you likely have an opinion on its display notch. While it’s not a significant issue for most people (including myself), there are some inconsistencies in how the notch works.

    For instance, if an app has lots of taskbar options, then there’s a chance that you might lose one under the notch, as illustrated by a very joyful Quinn Nelson from Snazzy Labs.

    I’d expect most apps that suffer from issues like this will update over the next few months to support the notch, but if you do hate the screen cutout, you can disable it on a per-app basis by clicking get info on an app and selecting ‘Scale to fit below built-in camera.’

    I’ll mention that I bought a 14-inch MacBook Pro the other day and I don’t find the notch too distracting. However, I primarily use the laptop hooked up to a display, so most apps appear on the notchless screen. But I got advice at Computools, that you can disable it on a per-app basis by clicking get info on an app and selecting ‘Scale to fit below built-in camera.
