    How to reduce BRIGHTNESS on the TEXT page


    I have problems when the TEXT PAGE is WHITE. The brightness of the screen hurts my eye. (I am blind in one eye)

    Is there anyway to change the colour of the TEXT PAGE to a moderate BLUE or GREY?

    Many thanks

    Hopefully you can change the colour temperature via your monitors menu. This will affect the whole screen not just whites.

    can you post the make and model of your monitor ?

    I had done as you had suggested previously but that did not yield the desired result.

    I wish to find a way to colour the TEXT page

    What application/ programme are you using to compose this text page?. I take it it's a TEXT page as in for instance Microsoft Word etc.

    Example

    There is no settings you can change in Windows 10 to do this.

    However, you can create a custom theme to do it.

    Whether an app uses your default colour for the window depends on if the app has been coded to use it or not. For apps that don't use the default colour you will have to change it through the app settings, if they give you that option.

    e.g. Notepad and Wordpad use the default colour, Explorer doesn't.

    If you want to do this I'll give you some instructions.
