    Inverted colors and cannot revert to normal display


    I'm embarrassed to say I hit an unknown set of keys -- I think they might have been: ctl-shift-tilde-scrolllock-9 -- for no good reason and my display went negative and is now stuck there. I've been able to revert my desktop using the Invert function on Magnifier but all my Firefox, Explorer or Chrome browser windows, folders and apps, along with my taskbar, display in negative and many parts are impossible to read.

    I don't have many adjustment options. For example, when I go to Color Options for the taskbar, the controls do not respond. If I go to Options in my word processor, Apache Open Office, I'm able to revert the color scheme to some extent in the document but the tool/menu bars remain in negative. Various "Invert Browser" add-ons from Firefox don't do anything.

    In trying to figure this out, it seemed like I might be able to use more options if I turned off High Contrast in the Display Preferences controls, but doing so made everything unreadable and I couldn't see how to go further.

    Here's a screenshot of how this forum looks to me on Firefox. Any help is greatly appreciated, thank you!
