For users who use their Mac devices on a daily purpose, it’s kind of compulsory to enable dark mode. Because no one likes to affect their eyesight on purpose, so to protect their eye’s health, Apple has decided to add the night mode for a user’s convenience. And you don’t need to install any extra packages to complete this task.
In this article, I’ve added more than one way to Enable Dark Mode on Mac. Readers are allowed to pick any method they find helpful for themselves. I know that most users don’t want to implement the same theme on all apps, so I’ve also drafted a way to turn on dark mode in apps individually.
3 Ways to Enable Dark Mode on Mac
Tweaking Default Settings
- Launch System Preferences
- Click on General
- From the Appearance section, select Dark theme
If you are willing to enjoy both Light and Dark themes, then select the Auto option. This would allow your Mac to set a Light theme during the day time and a Dark theme at Night.
Using NightOwl Dark Mode on Mac
Navigate to the Menu bar and select NightOwl from it to benefit from one of the following features:
- Schedule dark mode according to your requirement.
- Enable Dark Mode or Light Mode with a single click.
- Disable Dark Mode for specific apps.
Enable Dark Mode in Specific Apps
- Desktop: System Preferences -> Desktop & Screen Saver -> Dark (Still)
- TextEdit: View -> Use Dark Background for Windows
- Notes: Notes -> Prefernces -> Use Dark Backgrounds for Note Content
- Maps: View -> Use Dark Map
- Mail: Mail -> Prefrences -> Viewing -> Use dark backgrounds for messages
Note: All of the above-provided methods were to turn on dark mode on Mac. So if you want to turn off dark mode on Mac, then you just have to reverse the process and make selections depending upon your requirements.
