White text on black background
 
Hey people,

I find computers too bright. I am very sensitive to white light. I want to find a text editor which allows me to type white text on a black background. It's a pity Word doesn't allow you to do that. Also, It would be good if I could kind of "invert" the colours of my computer...everything's so bright.

Any recommendations from anyone?

Cheers,

Kyoto

Go to Display Properties, and use a 'High Contrast' Color Scheme.

Yep mine too. Makes it harder to read in my opinion

I figure you can make a flat black image and put it as your background on word though making your page black, then switch your text to white. Then when your print, if need be, change it back.

hi, im 100% sure there is an option in word to use white text on a blue background, i used it for a while. (that was on office 2003).

on both office 2003 and 2000, to enable it you go to tools, options, general, and then tick the blue background and white text box.

In MS Office 2003 do the following:

Format Menu > Background > Choose Colour
Format Menu > Font > Choose Colour

Et Voila!
