    Hello Paul, and welcome to Eight Forums.

    Are you referring to your screen resolution? I'm not sure where you would have clicked "high" at since that is not an available setting to click on for this.

    Do you remember anymore details that may help to ID what this was if not the above?

    Hi there I have a black background and all the text is in white or bright colours. Perhaps I should have called it high contrast instead. Paul.

    Ah, ok. You selected a "high contrast" theme. You should be able to select one of the "Windows Default Themes" to go back to normal.
