Issue with browser background on High Contrast setting.

Original Title: high contrast

When I use the High Contrast setting my browser background is displaying "grey", not Black when in High Contrast black, and not White when in HIgh Contrast White; it is always Grey. What is wrong with this computer?

​Hi Roy,

 

Thank you for posting your query in Microsoft Community forum.

 

 

It seems like you have an issue with browser background on High Contrast setting.
I can imagine the inconvenience you have experienced. We are here to help and guide you in the right direction.
I may need a few more information to understand the issue better.

1. Do you get any error messages?

2. Did you make any recent changes on the computer prior to this issue?

Method 1:
I would suggest you to install latest graphics drivers from the manufacturer website and check if it helps.

Method 2:
If the issue persists I would suggest you to run [System File Checker] SFC scan on the computer which would scan for corrupt system files on the computer and replace them.

It is running XP. I do not have admin rights to use Sfc. I was using high contrast, and it was working properly, then one day it was not working properly. The Firefox browser does display the proper Black browser background; IE and all the programs I have to run, no longer have the correct Black background, it is all Grey.

Okay - I was just making sure.

That isn't a problem I am familiar with in XP.

I suppose the Microsoft engaged Support Engineer "expert" will take it from here.
