Question Current window change color when I remove a usb stick


Jan 14, 2014
As I described at the theme when I removing a usb or pressing wrong button compination the current window change color (goes dark mode or high contrance you can say). How can I fix that?


Win 10 Master
if the wrong button combo happens to be Left ALt + Left Shift + Print screen then you sure press random keys as I hardly ever press print screen. The combo mentioned will turn on High Contrast mode. THis shows how to turn it off - https://www.isunshare.com/windows-10/disable-high-contrast-keyboard-shortcut-in-windows-10.html

is it high contrast Mode or just Dark mode?
Dark mode just makes the default windows 10 applications (Like file explorer) show dark backgrounds
High Contrast changes the desktop and the taskbar seems bigger, and you have a choice of colours, there is more than black, think there is a white one too.

See if this helps with the USB thing -
In Visa or Windows 7 there is a feature that allows a visual effect to be displayed in place of sound. This is why your screens inverts an image when you click on something that alerts a sound in windows.
You need to turn this OFF.

Go to Control Panel
Click Ease of Access Center
Click "Use text or visual alternatives for sounds"
Uncheck the box next to "Turn on visual notifications for sounds (Sound Sentry)

Click Apply.
