This isn't the solution you're looking for, but I've had similar issues, so this might help. At first I bought the Vanilla app. They have a free version. I forgot the difference between the 2 but it was worth it to me. It basically hides everything you put to the left of it. And you can set a shortcut key to toggle it open and close if you do want to see the rest of your menubar items. - Source: Reddit / 7 months ago
