How to Make Your MacBook Pro Aesthetic

Let’s face it, when most Mac users talk about their devices, what they tend to touch on with the most emphasis tends to be the high level of functionality and efficiency that the device brings to bear for them. And, if we’re to be completely fair, this is something that is, in truth, worth talking about.

Mac devices leave most (if not all) of their counterparts in the dust when it comes to metrics like the performance of the device and even the sheer number of valuable and relevant apps that come ready to use with the laptop or desktop.

However, one thing that they (Mac device users) might opt to not discuss but are still no less proud of is the high level of aesthetics of the device. The fact remains that, even left in their pure, unadulterated form, Mac products are a true joy and pleasure to beyond. The sheen, elegance, simplicity, and sophistication that go into these devices means that most people can identify these products even at a glance or from a distance.

How to Make Your MacBook Pro Aesthetic and Beautiful – What You Should Know

When people think of making their MacBook Pro look extraordinary, one of the first worries that springs to mind for them is whether they have to know some coding to be able to get this done with ease. Well, you’ll be happy to know that you don’t need to be able to string complex bits of code together just to make your device look a little nicer.

What’s more, you don’t have to even install unreliable third-party software on your device and put it at risk to achieve this goal either! All you need to do to learn how to make your MacBook Pro aesthetic and more visually pleasing is to know which in-built Mac features to take advantage of and precisely how to leverage that resource.

Sure, that isn’t likely going to be anywhere as easy as it sounds. So, we’ll be helping you cover your bases on all things relevant on that front! To make your MacBook Pro the perfect looker, some of the best things that you can do include:

Changing the Touch Bar of Your MacBook Pro

As a side note, please remember that these devices didn’t always come with a Touch Bar. Touch Bars were added to MacBook Pros in 2016. Over the years of developing and fine tuning this feature, it has now become both possible and easy to customize your Touch Bar.

Some cool things that you can do on that front include changing the Touch Bar for specific apps, the Touch Bar for all apps as well as the control strip.

All you have to do to get started making your MacBook Pro beautiful this way is to access your Touch Bar through the “Keyboard Settings”. This you can find by making your way to the “Apple Menu” and then clicking on “System Settings”. Upon getting here, you will be met with a list of sections to find and choose from. You’re to find and click on the “Keyboard” section specifically here. This section you can access from your left sidebar.

From the “Keyboard” section, you should be able to find the “Touch Bar Settings”. Once here, make your way to the “Customize Touch Bar” function and click on that.

Following that, you’ll be presented with a small window featuring 22 different buttons. This you can choose from depending on your preferences to customize your Touch Bar.

Alternatively, you can opt to customize your Touch Bar for a specific app by opening that app, accessing the “View” option, and following that up by clicking on “Customize Touch Bar”.

You can wrap this up by changing the accent color of your device to your desired taste by tweaking the “Accent Color” tab as well.

Adding a Sticky Note to Your MacBook Pro

Several great ways of customizing your MacBook Pro are greatly overlooked and underestimated. A classic example of one such avenue is using the built-in Sticky Note app on your Mac device. Well, we should mention that Windows devices do come with their own built-in apps as well. However, we lean more heavily towards the offering of the MacBook Pro because it’s several times more aesthetic.

To leverage this customization option, you just need to make your way to the applications folder and pick out and select the “Stickies” app. If you’d rather not do that, you also have the option of using the “Command + Space” key combination to access the search bar. Then, you can input “Stickies” as your search request and click on the result provided.

Next, use the “Command + N” key combination to create a new note and then modify the behavior of the newly created note. Modifying the behavior of the note can be done by going to the “Windows” setting and selecting the “Float on Top” option. Alternatively, when you get to the “Windows” setting you can choose the “Translucent” option instead.

Customizing the Dock of Your MacBook Pro

Lastly, we’ll be exploring the option of simply customizing your MacBook Pro’s Dock. The beauty of this approach is that it can be as light or as thoroughly extensive as you would like. There are several amazing things that you can tweak your Dock settings to do. At the top of that list includes making it change its position on your screen and increasing or decreasing the size of the Dock.

In addition to this, you can also disable or enable as well as increase or decrease the magnification function of the Dock. It can also be used to control what applications appear on the Dock as well as add or remove any app folder of your choice.

Finally, you can configure it to respond to any given number of behaviors, enhancing the utility of the tool in the process.

You can access these amazing features and more simply by making it to the “System Settings”, picking the “Dock” option, and making all the tweaks that you would like!

Bottom Line

Learning how to make your MacBook Pro aesthetic and unique in a crowd doesn’t have to be too hard. You just need to know what you want to achieve specifically. From there, finding the most efficient ways to achieve that end is easy!
