The General preferences tab lets you tailor Raycast to your needs. We recommend to launch it at Login and to replace Apple's Spotlight. This way you only need to remember one Hotkey and have Raycast always handy.


Raycast supports light and dark themes. By default, it adopts your system appearance. You can choose a specific appearance regardless.


Open the Extensions preferences tab to configure all available extensions. You can enable or disable each of them and their commands. Some extensions have more customizations. For example, you can log in to Jira or disable our signature for new issues.
