The Special menu was a feature of Apple's Mac OS from its inception until the last release of "Classic" Mac OS, Mac OS 9.2.2. This menu was responsible for managing the hardware and other system functions. It was always the rightmost menu on the menu bar in the Finder. In prerelease version of Classic Mac OS, the Special menu had its name changed to other terms beginning with the letter S, such as Snowman or SneezeSeason as a way of determining the development version from a screenshot.
In System 6 the Special menu allowed the user to choose an alternate startup program to be run instead of the Finder at boot time. This feature was replaced in System 7 by the Startup Items folder in the System Folder.
