How to Invert Colors on Windows XP

How to Invert Colors on Windows XP. Color and contrast make a huge difference in the visibility of your computer screen. If you're having trouble viewing items on your computer or just like experimenting with color, inverting the colors on your screen may be the perfect solution.

Step

Go to your "Start" menu and click on "Control Panel."

Step

Click the link called "Accessibility Options."

Step

Choose the task entitled "Adjust the contrast for text and colors on your screen."

Step

Check the option "Use High Contrast" at the top of the page under the "Display" tab.

Step

Open the "Settings" link to specify how you want your screen to look. Click "OK;" your current screen will close and you will be back on the "Display" tab.

Step

Allow the changes and keep your "Display" window open by clicking "Apply," which is helpful if you want to experiment with the contrasts. If you already know which setting you want and don't need the screen to remain open, click "OK." A small rectangle with the words "Please Wait" appears in the middle of your screen and then the inverted color scheme goes into effect.
