I had been on the lookout to get macOS Mojave Dynamic wallpaper on the previous versions of the macOS for quite some time. And guess what? I’ve finally succeeded in bringing it on the unsupported macOS version.
So, how does the trick work? Well, you have to download a collection of Dynamic wallpapers and set them to change automatically after a specified interval. It’s that straightforward! Of course, you can’t have the same experience, and the wallpaper won’t change dynamically based on the time of the day. However, it can definitely offer a pretty close experience. Ready to give it a shot? Let me walk you through the steps!
How to Use Mojave Dynamic Desktop Wallpaper on any Mac OS
Step #1. First things first, download the collection of 16 unique wallpapers (JPEG).
Step #2. Launch System Preferences on your Mac. (or click on Apple menu at the top right corner and select System Preferences.)
Step #3. Now, click on Desktop & Screen Saver.
Step #4. Next, ensure that Desktop tab is selected if it’s not already.
Step #5. Next up, drag and drop the collection of the Dynamic wallpapers in the Desktop section. Alternately, you can click on “+” button.
Then select the folder of the images.
Step #6. Once you have imported the images, check the box for Change Picture and then click on the drop-down menu that is next to it.
Step #7. Finally, set the time after which you want the wallpaper to change automatically.
Tip: For better effect, select one hour as it can offer a bit same impact as the original Dynamic wallpaper. To check out whether it works or not, I would suggest you choose 1 minute. And when you find it working, go with the one hour option.
That’s pretty much it!
Now, the wallpaper will change after the predefined time, thereby keeping the desktop look lively.
