    Lack of Highlighting

    The lack of effective highlighting of selections in win 10 is finally driving me mad . Is there anything anyone knows of that can deal with this? I have attached a screenshot. Believe it or not Adobe Acrobat Update service has been selected. There is now way anyone can tell. Is there a way to make that highlighting not be clear so my old eyes can see it?

    Thank you to the Gurus who can (I hope) help with this

    Thanks Aramil. You didn't solve my problem but you got me on the course to solve it. You posted your pic and said it works fine. I laughed because I could see no highlighting on your picture. So then I thought if I don't see it and he says it's there maybe it is my monitor. Changed contrast and voila! highlighting! Not sure why the contrast change happened about the time I updated to win 10 but it is nothing but history now. Thanks again.

    No problem, as long as it's solved.
