The Dark Mode and the Dynamic Desktop are among the best features of MacOS Mojave, though I have to admit that, unlike Stacks or the new and improved Finder, they do nothing to make your Mac more powerful or simpler. You're in for the show, but you're sure to find the two most tangible and enjoyable new features of your Mac as you upgrade to Mojave this fall.
If you can not wait for the official release and do not want to disturbyou can now create your own version of Dynamic Desktop on your current Mac. It's easy.
DIY Dynamic Desktop
introduces Dynamic Desktop, a desert landscape with changing light. It shows 16 images of the same sand dune scene, but at different times of the day – from the bright morning to the warm afternoon to the cool evening, with the shadows and clouds changing and the sky lightening and darkening. The dynamic desktop changes from one image to the next all day. It's a really fun feature.
To create your own dynamic desktop, you can download a zip file of the 16 images Mojave uses and save them to a folder on your Mac. Mojave changes the image every 90 minutes to go through all 16 images every 24 hours. Since you can not set your Mac to change its wallpaper every one and a half hours, you'll need to duplicate half the images so you have 24 files. That way, you can sync your dynamic DIY desktop to the shortest time interval that MacOS offers, and that's one hour. I only copied every other picture, so in the end I had a balance of morning, afternoon and evening scenes.
Open System Preferences Click Desktop & Screensaver and click above on Desktop . Next, drag your folder to the left column under folder . Check the box for Change the picture and set it Every hour .
Fun, 5 Seconds Preview
If you want to see a fun preview of your dynamic DIY desktop, set up a picture every 5 seconds in System Preferences, clear your desktop, and sit back and enjoy the show. 19659002] Read more: Everything you need to know about MacOS Mojave
