How to change the accent colour in macOS Mojave

How to change the accent colour in macOS Mojave

Before and after images. Left, standard blue accent colour.  Right, pink accent colour.

To change the Accent colour

  1. Click on the Apple icon  in the Menu Bar.
  2. Select System Preferences from the drop-down menu.
  3. In the System Preferences window select General.
  4. Under Accent Colour choose from the colour options (Blue, purple, pink, red, orange, yellow, green and grey).
  5. Changing the Accent colour will also change the Highlight colour (the colour used to highlight text that you have selected) to match. If you wish, you can select a different colour to use just for highlights - click on the drop-down menu for Highlight colour and choose from the options.
  6. When you are happy with your settings, click the Close (red) button at the top of the window or press Cmd + W to close the window.

Note: If this does not work it could be because your computer settings are managed by someone else (an IT department or administrator for example) in which case you will need to contact them to access these settings or for further help.
