How to activate dark mode in macOS Mojave

On the new operating system for Mac Apple has introduced Dark Mode by default, here's what it is and how to activate it on our device

MacOS Mojave 10.14, that is the new operating system for Mac from Apple, is finally ready to be downloaded and installed by users. Among the great innovations in this new OS, the most anticipated is definitely the Dark Mode, introduced by Apple engineers for night owls who spend their time in front of the PC monitor.

Dark Mode, in fact, is usually activated late in the evening and converts all the colors of the graphical interface (especially white backgrounds) to increasingly dark shades of gray. The reason for this is easy to explain: darker shades cancel out the effect of blue light that, late in the evening, can alter circadian cycles and make us sleep poorly. Mac dark mode was presented in jul 2018, during the annual developer conference (the WorldWide Developer Conference), immediately attracting the attentions of most owners of a PC of the bitten apple. With the official release of macOS Mojave the feature will be able to be used officially on all supported computers.

How to enable Dark Mode on macOS Mojave

To enable Dark Mode on Mac you'll have to start, as it often happens, from System Preferences: click on the bitten apple icon in the upper left corner and then choose the item in the menu that appears. Alternatively, you can open Spotlight (the icon in the shape of a magnifying glass), search for System Preferences and then launch the application.

Once inside, click General, then Appearance and here choose between Default View and Dark Mode. To activate it, just click on it and wait a few moments for the operating system to turn all GUI tones to gray.

It must be said, however, that Dark Mode doesn't work on all apps. On almost all native Apple apps, Dark Mode is compatible and fully functional. On some third-party apps, however, Dark Mode is incompatible and even if enabled, you'll still see the icons and the background of the screen instead of the classic view with dark background and icons with cold colors typical of Dark Mode.
