  2. Highlighting text in pdf in Windows 10

    Is anybody else having trouble highlighting text in pdf files? I just downloaded the new Windows 10 OS and I seem to have lost the ability to highlight text and save the highlight when working in pdf documents. This version only allows me to highlight,
    but not save the highlight while working through the document. Would like some comment on how to highlight and save the most important text in a pdf file.

    Strange pink highlight on hover/tooltip text


    It looks like the RGB value that my computer has set should be similar to R: 253, G: 0, B: 249.
    In the "Colors" directory of regedit there's no value that looks as if it has been set to the hot pink colour. Interestingly the hot pink highlight also shows up for some text in regedit:

    Note: the pink highlight doesn't occur when I actually highlight things. It doesn't disapear when I highlight things either. It just shows up by default on certain bits of text, most commonly settings tabs (File, Edit, Tools, View, etc.) in most programs and hover/tooltip text on things - e.g. Hovering over a text document on my desktop will tell me the Type, Size, and Date modified but all this information has this strange pink highlight.

    Because of this I'm not sure which value to change as Hilight seems to be set to the default blue, could you suggest a directory where I might find the correct value to change?

    Thanks Highlighting documents/ texts :)

    Text highlight not sticking - Post Anniversary Update Issue


    Immediately following the Anniversary Update, I have been experiencing issues with text highlighting.

    Left click text highlighting rarely 'sticks', or stays highlighted after releasing the left mouse button.

    Right click text highlighting doesn't highlight text at all.

    I have tried using another mouse (different manufacturer) - same issue.

    Does anyone have any suggestions, or has anyone experienced this issue?

    Thanks

    P.s. I've tried some basic troubleshooting such as searching for updated drivers, restarting system, using another mouse (as mentioned)
