Why the Date and Time In Your Mac Menu Bar Is Gray

If the date and time in the top right corner of your Mac's screen is gray or dimmed, it is because you are using Do Not Disturb or some other Focus mode. Learn how to turn it off if you have turned it on accidentally, and find out how you can keep the date and time as black text when a Focus mode is on.

    Thank you so much! It was always hard to read the time and I was very confused why Apple would make it so hard to read – what's going on? You made it very clear to me and gave me a solution. Now I can have a Focus mode and still be able to read the time :D Thank you for your help!!
