Dark Mode on your latest macOS Mojave is a blessing for those who work till late at night. But then coming back to the normal mode or light mode takes users from the same procedure to follow on their Mac. A better option is to add light and dark mode switch to your Mac dock.
It takes only a few steps to create a light/dark mode switch on your Mac’s dock. This will save a lot of time of yours.
How to Switch from Light to Dark Mode Using a Button on Mac Dock
Step #1. First off, open Automator from Spotlight Search.
Step #2. In case your Mac doesn’t show full Automator window, then Click on File Menu and Select New.
Step #3. Next, click on Application as a type for your document, and then click on the Choose button.
Step #4. A window still appears on your Mac screen. Here, see to it that Actions tab is selected → Now you are supposed to click on Utilities under Library. Then click Change System Appearance.
Step #5. Now Drag Change System Appearance action to the main Automator window, where you can build your workflow.
Step #6. Next, choose Toggle Light/Dark from the drop-down list.
Step #7. Click File from the menu and choose Save → Give the file name save it to your choice of location, and click on Save.
Step #8. The procedure continues as you need to drag the saved file to Mac dock. It is an application file, and therefore, you can move it to the left of Mac dock where other applications reside.
Step #9. When you use this switch for the first time, a pop-up message appears on your Mac: LightDarkToggle” wants access to control “System Events.” Allowing control will provide access to documents and data in “System Events,” and to perform actions within that app. Click on OK button.
Now that your toggle switch is available on the dock, you can simply double click the switch to use light and dark mode from Mac dock.
That’s all friends!
You have successfully enabled a switch to use light/dark mode from Mac dock.
Isn’t it a cool feature? Using light and dark mode on your Mac is just a click away. Instead of going through that long process, the feature now resides on your Mac dock.
