main menu in weird location


On one computer my intelliJ looks like this

this is what I prefer

but on another computer it looks like this

anyone know what causes this behavior / how to adjust it?

You are running IntelliJ IDEA on the old Java runtime that doesn't support macOS native menu. The solution is to always use the default bundled JetBrains Runtime for running our products, see for more details.
