I just upgraded to whatever the current version of Excel is and it seems that High Contrast mode interfering with colors is still a thing.
You see, I have Irlen Syndrome, particularly sensitivity to white/blue light. The dark skin on Windows 10 still has god awful white bars for inactive windows and elsewhere so I'm stuck as a second class citizen on windows with High contrast mode. A side effect of this is that MS Office is also stuck in high contrast mode.
I cannot apply color anywhere in excel, which makes sorting data hard. I've resigned to using Google Sheets, which is pathetic seeing as how I pay money for Office.
I cannot change the background color of Word (I read better on a color than black my dudes) meaning if I want to proofread my stuff I need to blow up the font to size massive or print out the paperwork.
Is there some way to turn it off in excel/word that I'm missing or has Microsoft once again failed Irlen people like me who need to get rid of white, not color?
