Windows 7: customize background color, comfort your eyes

customize background color, comfort your eyes

Usually, the background color of WOED and IE are white. It harms eyes. Here are several steps to change the background color into gentle green.
Just a few steps, why not tale them to comfort your eyes?

A. set the bgcolor of file and doc windows
1. Right Click on a blank of the desktop.
Click “properties
Click the tab of “appearance” in the popup box
Click on the button of “Advanced”, a new box pops up.
Drill down the frame for items, choose “Windows”. On the right side of “items” option, there is a frame for color choices. Drill it down and click the option of “others”, there will pop up another box.

Just do the following settings:
Hue: 85
Sat: 90
Lum: 205
And don’t forget to click button of “add to custom colors”, then click “OK” in all the following steps.

B. set the bgcolor of IE
1. Open IE
2. Click “tools--->Internet Options--->Assessibility--->tick the option of “Ignore colors specified on web pages--->click “OK--->confirm

This color is much softer to eyes than white color. You may feel not used to it, but it's indeed good to your eyes. Why not have a try?
