I want to write some bash-scripts that change for me system settings like:

  • accessibility > display > colour Filters > tint

What's in general the best way to find that "domain" (not sure how this thing after the defaults command is called)

(Mac OS Montery)

To find a specific domain, type in Terminal: defaults find + (the domain you are looking for)

You can access the manual by typing: man defaults to get a general idea on the defaults command

To get a complete list of the domains, type: defaults domains
the list of domains will show up: there are a lot!
