How to select any solid colour for your OS X desktop

Posted 9 years, 7 months ago    0 comments

Wouldn't it be nice to be able to choose any solid colour for your Mac desktop, rather than just one of the 10 provided? Here's how to do it:

  1. Download this zip file below. Inside this zip file is a special transparent image which will be used as your desktop picture. 
    transparent_backdrop 0mpseunj.zip
     
  2. Open up System Preferences, and go to the "Desktop & Screen" saver section. Make sure the "Desktop" tab is selected.
  3. Drag the transparent_backdrop.png file to the desktop image well
  4. Ensure that "Center" is chosen from the pop up menu, and a button to select your background colour will appear.
  5. Choose what ever colour you want. Perhaps not bright lime.
