Text color not showing Word 2010

    Question

  • When I change the text color (in a doc or in Word Art) it does not show up on my screen.  The text IS highlighted when I change it, it is being changed (when I print it out, the color is correct).  But it doesn't show in my screen, all text and WordArt is black.   Makes creating some fancy stuff difficult.

    Thanks,

    Kathy

  • Found my answer-- really weird answer, but worked for me.  Change your Windows XP theme setting.  Right click on the desktop, I choose the Windwos 7 theme.  And Bingo, colored fonts on my screen.  (I had other things in color, colors seemed fine, just colored fonts in Word not showing up...)

  • I solved this by Control Panel - Accessibility Oprions (?Wheel chair symbol) - Adjust the contrast - Then unselect Use High Contrast.
