Disabling Wallpaper Tinting

Juli Clover:

The fourth beta of macOS Big Sur, released yesterday, adds a new toggle in System Preferences that’s designed to disable the wallpaper tinting feature that’s meant to make windows blend in with the desktop wallpaper.

For those who have Dark Mode enabled, turning off wallpaper tinting can make windows on the Mac noticeably darker, especially when a lighter color background is in use.

Anton Sotkov:

Previously the only way to disable it was to use the graphite accent color.

Or by using “Reduce transparency.” However, “Allow wallpaper tinting in windows” does not apply to the menu bar, so I’ll continue using the accessibility setting.
