Is there a simple tutorial on how to deal with Notch hiding Menubar items?

I just want to be able to view icons that get hidden under the Notch, but looking at the settings for the Notch I can't figure it out, it is so overly complicated

I don't think it's possible to show icons that are hidden by macOS. (Maybe the app Bartender can help!)

Yeah I was using Bartender but there's some funny stuff going on with how fast it seems to update. They sort of blink on and off.

I was hoping that having smaller icons would allow me to see more of them but it seems to mimic the system instead of allowing me to view more. Is that the case Andreas?
