Turn on Dark Mode on your Mac quickly? This is how!

In macOS, people can opt for a dark system view, the so-called Dark mode.

In the dark mode, the system uses a darker color palette for all screens, views, menus and controls, and more vividness is used to make foreground content stand out against the dark backgrounds. The Dark mode supports all accessibility features.

When you put your macOS in the dark mode, white text will appear on a dark background. The dark mode is intended to reduce exposure to blue light and to help prevent tired eyes due to prolonged display work.

In macOS, you can easily and quickly enable dark mode via the control panel located at the top right next to the time and date.
