macOS Hints: Darkmode

Develop Ideas

The Dark Mode in macOS exists since macOS 10.13 Mojave. Merlin Project supports both dark and light mode.

To darken the light appearance of the user interface proceed as follows:

  1. open "System Settings > General".
  2. Click on the image "Dark" under "Appearance".
Dark A

The user interface darkens immediately. This allows you to work comfortably, especially at a late hour.

With macOS Catalina there is also a new option. If you click on "Automatic", the system will automatically adjust the corresponding appearance according to the time of day.

Dark B

More about Dark Mode can be found directly on the Apple website.


In macOS Mojave this automatic function can be set up with the free application f.lux.
