How to Change the System Accent Color in macOS Mojave on Mac

You've got an option to set a range of system accent colors on your Mac running macOS Mojave. Refer this guide to find out how it works the right way!

Mojave has got multiple accent colors. That means you’ve got more flexibility to tweak the UI elements. So, if you ever find the going a bit dull, don’t fail to perfectly adjust system accent color on your Mac running macOS Mojave.

Mojave lets you customize several UI elements like popup menus, app menus, menu bar, focus fields, text and file selections, radio buttons etc. Another notable thing about it is that when you tweak the accent color, it automatically changes highlight color to make a right match.
