How to Increase Productivity on Mac with HazeOver?

  • Help yourself focus on one thing at a time. Automagically.
  • Easily see which window has keyboard focus. No more typing in a wrong window because the contrast is low.
  • Spend less time managing windows. The clutter will no longer bother you. No need to minimize, close or hide windows for your workspace to be neat.
  • Got a bigger display? Then going full screen is not an option for you. HazeOver prevents getting overwhelmed with too many windows.
  • Multiple monitors? This app will let you know which screen is focused or highlight a window on each monitor.
  • Power up macOS Dark Mode and reduce background glare.
  • Working at night? Reduce interface brightness without sacrificing legibility or color accuracy of the front window.

Heavy multi-tasking kills your concentration. All those tweets, emails, chat messages and lolcats ? staring back at you from the background. They strive for your attention. And you only have that much of it.

Don’t let yourself drown in scores of open windows. Hiding, switching, looking for the right one, more hiding, more switching. Calm down, breathe in, breathe out, launch HazeOver and finally concentrate on what you’ve been up to.

HazeOver automatically highlights an active window or app when you switch windows. The less important things gently fade away in the background, helping increase your productivity.

Set the hazing intensity and speed to your liking. Be it a soft dimming, an undemanding hint to focus on your workflow. Or a powerful dark background for outright dedication to your current task.

  • Desktop is automatically revealed when used.
  • Toggle the shade with a keyboard shortcut or adjust intensity with a gesture.
  • Keep separate dimming settings for Dark and Light mode.
  • Dragging stuff between apps? Tap “fn” key and HazeOver will gracefully fade out.
  • Control HazeOver state and settings with Shortcuts app or AppleScript.

How to Adjust Brightness Manually On an External Display

If you’re using an external display made by Apple, you may see a “Brightness” slider in the System Preferences window and be able to control the brightness of your display using the keys on your keyboard.

However, these keys won’t do anything and you won’t have a “Brightness” slider in the System Preferences window if you’re using an external display not made by Apple.

If you’re using a third-party display, you’ll need to adjust the brightness on the display. Look for physical buttons on the display itself, often located near the power button. You may find dedicated “brightness up” and “brightness down” buttons, or you may have to press a “menu” or “options” button and locate this option in an on-screen menu.

How to dim your display even further

Since your display brightness is really a function built into the back-lit display hardware of your Mac, the best and easiest way to get that lower brightness setting that you can’t seem to find is by using an app on your Mac that can add a dark shade overlay over everything you see on the screen to give you the illusion that your display just got darker.

One such app that is free and works great for this is Shady for Mac, which you can download for free. To use the app, follow these steps:

Step 1: Download Shady for Mac from the link provided above and open it.

Step 2: From the Menu Bar on your Mac, click on the Shady icon and take note of the Dark/Light slider.

Step 3: Drag the slider down closer to the “

Step 3: Drag the slider down closer to the “Dark” label and your display will get a dark shade placed over it.

Step 4: That’s it! You now have a simple way

Step 4: That’s it! You now have a simple way of reducing the glare into your eyeballs in a dark environment.
