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

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.

Do note that highlight color is restricted to only the text you choose. In the latest macOS, you get the option to differentiate it from the accent color.

Step #1. Click on Apple menu and select System Preferences.

Stay Tuned for More!

Mojave is considered to be a big update for macOS. With a range of all new features, it’s got plenty up its sleeve to win users. Beyond the all-new add-ons, what has caught my attention in the operating system is the improved performance and stability. Besides, the introduction of some iOS apps like Stocks and Apple News seems to have kick-started a new era of universal apps.
