Mac, Tutorials

If you’re working late at night or simply prefer a darker keyboard, you may want to turn off the keyboard backlight on your Mac. Fortunately, it’s a simple process that can be done in just a few quick steps.

Step 1: Accessing System Preferences

To begin, click on the Apple logo located in the top-left corner of your screen. From the drop-down menu, select “System Preferences”.

Step 2: Navigating to Keyboard Settings

Once you’re in System Preferences, locate and click on the “Keyboard” icon. This will open up a new window with various keyboard settings.

Step 3: Adjusting Keyboard Backlight

In the Keyboard settings window, you’ll see a tab labeled “Keyboard”. Click on this tab to access additional keyboard options.

Underneath the keyboard options, you’ll find a slider labeled “Keyboard backlight”. By default, this slider is set to “Full” which means that the keyboard backlight is at its maximum brightness. To turn off the keyboard backlight completely, simply drag the slider all the way to the left until it reaches “Off”.

Note: Some Mac models may have different keyboard backlight settings. The slider might be labeled differently or might not appear at all.

Step 4: Confirming Changes

After adjusting the keyboard backlight setting, close the System Preferences window by clicking on the red close button located in the top-left corner of that window.

Your changes should take effect immediately. The keyboard backlight should now be turned off and you can work without any distractions from your illuminated keys.

Additional Tips:

  • If you want to turn the keyboard backlight back on, simply follow the same steps outlined above and adjust the slider to your desired brightness level.
  • If your Mac has a Touch Bar, you can also control the keyboard backlight by tapping on the “Keyboard Brightness” button located on the right side of the Touch Bar.
  • Keep in mind that turning off the keyboard backlight can help conserve battery life, especially when you’re using your Mac on-the-go.

With these simple steps, you can easily turn off the keyboard backlight on your Mac and customize your workspace to suit your preferences. Enjoy working in a dimly lit environment without any distractions!
