Easy Fix for Hard to Read Websites

I’m sure most of us have had that frustrating experience of visiting and a website and whether by way of poor web design or just a background image that didn’t load correctly, you are faced with dark text on a dark background, which is difficult to read for most folks.

However…there’s a really easy keyboard command that remedies the situation:  hold down the Ctrl key and press A.

This is actually the command to highlight, so doing this turns the background colour blue and the text white – with the added extra benefit of  making it instantly easy to read!

    I use this often! I also modified my highlight color to one which makes it much easier for me to read over whatever the default was before, right now mine is a deep hot pink. Red was clashing pretty hard a lot of the time, but the pink makes for high contrast without my eyeballs feeling like they’re vibrating.
