So, I've realiised just how dumb we're all being in this issue. If you are running a modern, expensive Mac or MacBook (Like me: Montery OS on a MacBook M1 Max Pro) the menu bar acts just like any drop-down bar. All the goodies are there, honestly. Okay, it's a pain in the butt, yet it is there and it does work. I really hope this helps.
Good luck and be well in these crappy times.
