I have been trying to alter the backgorund colours in Appearance and personalisation, (I have no idea that the actual headings mean) so I changed everything to white on my Toshiba laptop and now I cant see anything, even shutting it down and turning it back on means I cant get any desktop page as everything is white, how can I get it back to its orginal state?? What a mess I have made of this!! I thought I would be able to start with a plain neutral background and then add the different tones to make the various tings stand out in contrasting colours, I cant believe I have made such a b**ls of this with no idea how to fix it, thnaks
It wont let me open it in F8, it just keeps going to the start up screen, I do get my own little start up photo showing and I can kinda navigate with the mouse to put the 4 fig pincode in (not a password) then I do get my own desktop page but when I try to go to control panel its very hit and miss as its all in white, can find control panel and personalisation but its too difficult to even try and get one colour changed, what a mess!!
Its a windows 8.1 - I have managed to get into a recovery page which gives lots of options, so I have opted for "reset computer" they give a full wipe option if you are getting rid of the computer or a "reset" option if you are keeping it, I only use this laptop for printing and making ebay labels so I can reload any docs and photos and programmes I use later, I just it brings back the thing to its original settings before I messed it up like this, will let you know, God what a pain!! All this began when I loaded a programme and it altered all the colours of the backgrounds etc., so I was messing about trying to get the contrast settings back and thats why I changed it all to white so I could figure out what the descriptions actaually mean as I added one colour on top of another but I didnt realise it would make everything unseeable.
