Seeing Blue

Seeing Blue

Are you one of the many people who find it easier to read light printing on a dark background?

Would you like to see the “light” in MS Word?

Word has the option of setting your screen to display a blue background with white lettering!

And I don’t mean actually changing text to white and the background to blue. No, this setting in Word that makes the color change for easy reading on the monitor without messing with the printing of the document. This means the good news is that while you get to see things a little easier, you don’t have to spend a bunch of time setting everything back to black and white in order to print.

See the difference?

To make the change simply go to the Tools menu, Options choice.

Then in the General tab check the box for Blue background, white text.


Click OK.

That’s it. Now you should see blue, which is certainly better than feeling blue, unless you’re in a jazz band, then it’s your livelihood…

P. S. If you don’t like it or it isn’t helping, then simply go back in and uncheck the box.
