    Windows 8.1 color/contrast trouble


    Hello,

    I don't know what I did wrong but suddenly the colors of several programs changed, it changed when I did somthing with narrator or something like that at the lockscreen (Ctrl+Alt+Del).
    I hope someone can give me an explanation for this because I wouldn't know how to google it.
    Pics attached.

    Is the machine a Laptop? Maybe you set high contrast mode on. Right click on Desktop, click Personalize and select a normal theme if high contrast is already selected.

    Do you have any theme modification running on the system? That could be forcing high contrast somehow.

    That did the trick, I was running a custom theme and somehow that activated high contrast in several programs.
    Thanks for your help
