    Sounds like you may have invoked a High Contrast Theme. Go to Settings/Personalization/Colors/High Contrast settings.

    Thanks, Edwin. Before I read your post I had to use my computer right away, but couldn't read the screen well enough. So, I wound up resetting it. That eliminated the problem. Of course, it took a long time and I lost number of programs that needed to be re-installed. Anyhow, I'll make note of your suggestion in case I screw it up again.
