Activate dark mode with a keyboard command

(Originally posted on 2014-12-19)

Dark mode in Yosemite/El Capitan can be applied by opening up System Preferences>General and checking a box. But you can also use a keyboard command if you do the following:

In terminal, input this

sudo defaults write /Library/Preferences/.GlobalPreferences.plist _HIEnableThemeSwitchHotKey -bool true

This is a sudo command, so it will ask for your password. Be careful that you type it out carefully. Logout and log back in.

You can now toggle Dark mode on/off by typing ⌘⌥⌃T.
