Dear Forum Members,
Hope you're well. I've used computers since 1980. I just upgraded to Win 7 (Home Premium). I have a screen color control problem. It does not involve calibration. I'm not concerned about shades of color, but need to help to get onto the screen, my choice of basic display colors.
I use a black screen background with white text, in Word, Excel, Firefox, etc. This set-up minimizes eye strain: the only active (illuminated) pixels are those bearing information.
My color choice means that in the "Title" box above this window - by which I submit this post - I cannot see what I type. Even if I highlight what I've typed, I only see a black box. The letters are not visible. However, within this text-entry window, I get white text on a black background.
Further, within Windows 7, I cannot see document titles, when I list drive contents. However, the documents' parameters are visible: black on white (instead of white on black). How can I get a black background with white text, throughout Windows?
For example, under "Windows Color and Appearance", if I select White for "Window Text" for the "Active Window", I also get White for "Message Text" for item "Message Box". While I definitely want to keep "White" for the text in the "Active Window", I want to use another color for "Message Text" in the "Message Box". Is there a way to de-link the color choices for "Window Text" and "Message Text".
Thanks for your help. I appreciate it.
