    How can I get back to default personalization backgrounds colors, etc.


    Somehow I screwed up my entire color scheme through Start/Settings/Home/Personalize. I changed something (possibly by clicking on High Contrast -Black) and I couldn't reverse it. Now I've made it worse and most of my Microsoft apps and programs' color schemes are all screwed up.

    How can I get back to the default settings for backgrounds and texts and toolbars?

    Thanks,
    Carl

    I realize that the background color changed from blue to black. I will try to help you with this issue.

    Close all open windows, restart the computer once and then login to the computer to check if that helps.

    Suggest you to refer to this article to check if that helps.
