    Hi Linda,

    As per the info, I request you to kindly send us a screenshot of the screen so that we can get a clearer image of the issue in hand.

    To learn how to attach screenshot refer to:

    Also, you can follow the instructions below and check if it helps:

    Navigate to Settings > Personalization > Themes > Theme Settings > and select the option for Windows

    Hope this helps

    About three to four months ago everything on my desktop changed. Where the background was a pleasing white or something else to this horrible black. In some programs that I need, it seems instructional buttons are missing. I'm speaking of "Submit", "Order
    now" and so forth. How can I get rid of this black and get back to something easier and less confusing?

    Hi, usually scanners have a preview option so you can get an idea of how the scan will appear. A flatbed scanner will do the preview scan more quickly than usual.

    If you are not happy with the preview, there are adjustments you can make, then retry the preview scan.
    The adjustments available will depend on whether you choose a black & white, greyscale or colour scan.

    The functions available depend on your scanner driver.

    I've never used a scanner/printer combination though. If you post your particular printer type, you might be lucky and someone reading this post might be familiar with your device.

    You might also consider asking a question in the forum related to your printer, or checking its manual.

  5. If its a small piece of paper, and the scanned image is 8.5 x 11, that can happen. The areas where there was nothing will be black. Cropping the image to match what is being scanned will cure it.

    Another possible solution: position the piece of paper on the scanner bed where you want it to be, then lay a large piece of white (or same-colored) paper on top of it. This will prevent the background from showing black, as it sometimes will when scanning a small item on a large scanning bed.
