High Contrast

posted in: Shortcut of the Week | 0

High Contrast feature reverses the colour settings, so that text is white on a black background.
To switch on High Contrast, press Alt + Left Shift + Print Screen. Then press Enter to confirm.
To switch off High Contrast, press Alt + Left Shift + Print Screen again.
The Print Screen key (usually abbreviated to Prt Scr) is up the top right of the keyboard, but the position can vary on different keyboards.
One issue to note is that the Google Chrome Web Browser is not affected by the Windows High Contrast feature because it has its own Negative – Revert Web Colours extension. Once added to Chrome, this feature is activated by pressing Shift + F11 and then refreshing the Web page.
Follow this link for the option to add this extension to Chrome.
