How can I change the aqua theme/skin to a dark one in Yosemite? I'm referring to the window title bars, scroll bars, buttons, etc (the cocoa aqua ui theme?). Everything is grayish by default, but i'd like a dark theme.

  • I don't believe currently that there's a way to get a system wide dark mode for Yosemite, as the dark mode theme only effects the menu bar and dock. – ajkblue Nov 6 '14 at 23:17

If you're still looking for a method to darken your UI in Yosemite, download Flavours 2 and choose the "Smooth Criminal" flavour. Here's a quick screenshot of "Smooth Criminal."

Flavours 2 is still in Beta, but most things look great with this skin.

You can change the Finder icons with LiteIcon, freeware.

More icons than you could ever need at DeviantArt

Alfred (freeware) can do custom theming, but might require the Powerpack (not free) for what you require.

There's also ThemePark

  • Thanks! Does Themepark work in Yosemite? The site seems to be "temporarily unavailable". – trusktr Nov 8 '14 at 18:02

    idk, sorry - I tried to check, but discovered the same thing. I guess we'll have to wait for it to come back up. – Tetsujin Nov 8 '14 at 18:15
  • Hopefully it does! – trusktr Nov 8 '14 at 18:49
  • I'm not sure why changing the appearance of Alfred is being mentioned here. It's not capable of theming the OS. – epimorphic Feb 28 '15 at 7:18

Go to System Preferences → General → Right under Appearance check "Use dark menu bar and dock"

  • I knew that already, and have that enabled. I was referring to the window title bars, scroll bars, buttons, etc (the cocoa aqua theme?). They are gray by default, but i'd like a dark theme. – trusktr Nov 6 '14 at 20:49
  • You may want to rephrase your question then. – zerohedge Nov 6 '14 at 20:51
