  1. Font color change with latest update


    I just updated my Windows 10 laptop and restarted. When it rebooted, all the text is now blue. It is very difficult to read. It is in windows search bar as well as all web pages and emails, etc. I have since shut down and rebooted my computer twice. No change. I need this fixed!! I cannot read without straining. I am so frustrated. This is the second update in a row that has caused a major issue for me.


    Please help!

    :)
