high contrast problems

    Question

  • after looking at high contrast I'm starting to get problems all over with it now

     

    before when ever I restart/shutdown, once on reboot high contrast turns back on no matter what.

    Now high contrast shows off yet everything I open or pops up is in high contrast my search bars, pop up's, some windows I open,

    it's like anything I open up automatically goes into high contrast. Something is really wrong with it I don't know if its just me or if anyone is having issues with it also but its really bugging me now

  • I found the problem the issue is the win 8 basic theme I looked up some threads of people who had this issue in win 7 they solved it by changing theme so I changed my win 8 basic theme to my win 7 halo theme I had on before and its all gone high contrast is off now its not turning on and its great

     

    if a Microsoft employee see's this you need to fix the theme that comes with win 8 it's causing problems with the high contrast mode

  • I had similar issues after trying out the high contrast mode, it was like half of W8 hadn't realised I'd turned it off. A random series of reboots and turning it on/off a few times seemed to cure it. Sorry I can't be more specific as to what action cured the problem but I really have no idea which one finally did the trick.
