How to install macOS Mojave 10.14 right away

Today I will explain how to quickly take advantage of one of the most important new features of this OS, namely the Dark Mode. 

How to activate Dark Mode on macOS Mojave 10.14

First of all, I quickly remember that the Dark Mode introduced with macOS Mojave 10.14 makes it possible to make the operating system completely dark (almost total black).

Not just some windows, but the entire operating system, including applications, veer towards black, giving a much more professional look to the whole operating system. In this way you can use the Mac even in the dark, at night or in low light environments without straining your eyes. 

If you are already using macOS Mojave 10.14 and want to try the Dark Mode, here’s what you need to do to activate it in one click.

From the System Preferences it is at any time possible to go to the “General” section and from here choose the traditional or the “dark” aspect. It is not possible to make the choice (light interface or dark interface) only for some applications.

In particular, you must follow this path to activate the Dark Mode:

Step # 1:  Click on the apple icon in the upper left corner of the navigation bar

Step # 2:  Click on System Preferences

Step # 3:  Now click on Generali

Step # 4:  Now go to  Appearance  and choose the second option to activate Dark Mode on MacOS Mojave 10.14 


Now enjoy your completely black Mac! What do you think about it? Do you like the final result?

As you can see, you can also give customized color shades to Dark Mode: choose the one you prefer to customize MacOS Mojave 10.14 to the max.

Turn off Dark Mode in MacOS Mojave

Just like you activated it, the Dark Mode is very easily deactivated on MacOS Mojave 10.14.

To deactivate the Dark Mode you have to follow the instructions in the previous point and, under the Appearance item,  you have to click again on the left window, the color one to be clear.

As if by magic the Dark Mode on macOS Mojave 10.14 will be disabled.

Simple, easy, fast.


It’s all for this guide too.
