In this lesson for macOS Mojave, I look at the new Dynamic Desktop feature. With the Dynamic Desktop, the desktop picture will change based on the time of day. There are two dynamic desktops available – Mojave and Solar Gradients.
Selecting a Dynamic Desktop
To choose a Dynamic Desktop, you need to go to your System Preferences. From there select Desktop & Screen Saver. In the sidebar on the left, make sure you have Desktop Pictures selected. When you do, you’ll have the option to choose one of two Dynamic Desktops – Mojave and Solar Gradient. When you select one of these, your desktop will change depending on the time of day.
Selecting a Still Image
With the Mojave Dynamic Desktop, you can also select a still image from the pull-down menu below the Mojave Dynamic Desktop name. You do not have this option with the Solar Gradient Dynamic Desktop.
New Desktop Images
Apple also introduced new desktop images with Mojave. You’ll find these under the Desktop Pictures category below Dynamic Desktop.
