Pro Tip: Disable Dark Mode in Chrome

So Chrome 73 brought in Dark Mode support on MacOS Mojave. I use Dark Mode, but I’m not 100% sold on using Dark Mode in Chrome – mostly because it’s so similar to Incognito Mode.

There is no toggle mode within Chrome to disable it – it inherits it from the OS, but if you want to or need to disable it, you can. Just open a Terminal Window and run the following command (and then restart Chrome)

defaults write NSRequiresAquaSystemAppearance -bool YES

If you want to turn it back on again, you guessed it:

defaults write NSRequiresAquaSystemAppearance -bool NO
