Apple recently released its macOS Sonoma operating system to the public and it came with a new option named ‘Click Wallpaper to Reveal Desktop.’ This feature is enabled by default and hides all the windows when you click on the wallpapers.
I was also annoyed by this feature and was looking for a way to disable it. Finally I found the solution and am now sharing it with you.
When you update macOS Sonoma by default this feature is enabled and it will hide all your active windows when you click on your desktop wallpapers. This feature might be easy to handle when you have multiple files on the desktop, and you need to access them. But if you find this difficult to work with, you can disable it by following our guide.
There is one way to disable this but for that you first need to disable Stage Manager in the menu bar control center panel. Once you have done this follow these steps below:
- Click on the Apple symbol () in your Mac’s menu bar at the top-left corner.
- Now tap on System Preferences.
- Scroll and click on Desktop & Dock in the side column.
- In Desktop & Dock you will find the Stage Manager section. There you will find an option “Click wallpaper to reveal desktop.” Tap on “Always” and then choose “Only in Stage Manager.”
If you see the option “Always,” you can tap on it and select “Only in Stage Manager.”
Hurrah! You have finally gotten out of this problem by following our guide. If you want to enable this option, you can follow these steps in reverse, and you will enable ‘Click Wallpaper to Reveal Desktop.”
