With smart home devices you can set your alarm, turn on kitchen lights while lying in bed, and manage all security cameras—completely remotely. Take the same approach to your Mac and you’ll win the precious time you wanted so much. Just make sure you use it right. 

One Switch, a menu bar app for easy toggling 

One Switch caters for all your moods. From sunrise to sunset and from staying awake to sleeping, this simple menu bar app manages the settings you customize throughout the day. One Switch was created for macOS 10.14 and later, so it has a perfect look in both Dark and Light modes. 

All the tweaks in one spot

Here’s the full list of switches the app can show in the menu bar: 

  • Light/Dark Mode: Change the desktop theme. 

  • Keep Awake: Stay active by preventing your computer from sleeping. 

  • Screen Saver: An instant way to start the screensaver on Mac. 

  • Hide/Show Desktop Icons: Maybe you need to grab a screenshot, or just love your desktop clean.

  • AirPods: Easily connect your wireless earbuds. One second, and you’re listening. 

  • Do Not Disturb: Turn off notifications for a specific period of time. 

  • Night Shift: Auto change from sunrise to sunset. 

Customize switches 

Pick your favorites, or those you use frequently, and remove the rest. You can also change the order of switches via drag and drop. To transform your One Switch, click on Customize in the bottom of the app’s drop-down menu.
