Enable high contrast themes in Windows 10 / 8.1

Windows 10 / 8 have a high contrast ratio of 14:1 between the foreground and background. In earlier versions of Windows, the high-contrast mode was limited to themes running under classic themes that were not visually designed. But in Windows 8, Windows Server 2012 and above, Classic mode has been removed and replaced by visually designed, high-contrast themes.

The user interface components that are modified in high contrast themes are:

  1. Background color of windows
  2. Text color
  3. Hyperlink color
  4. Text off
  5. Foreground and background colors of selected text
  6. Foreground and background colors of selected text
  7. Front colors
  8. Inactive foreground and background colors
  9. Foreground and background colors of foreground and background color buttons.

Make sense of Microsoft’s free upgrade strategy for Windows 10

A few days ago, we reported how the free upgrade policy for Windows 10 confuses and disappoints the real users of the operating system. Today, I give my opinion on what I think of this policy.

It is Microsoft’s strategy to give everyone a free Windows 10 upgrade. This strategy is translucent, if not totally transparent. I mean, I get the impression that Microsoft offers updates for people moving from hacked Windows 8.1 to Windows 10. Most articles say that even pirated copies of Windows 8 can be upgraded to Windows 10, but are not considered authentic and therefore do not receive any further updates. That’s what Microsoft is saying right now. But it doesn’t have to be the idea of implementing the same thing. And I’m also sure it’s not about not providing updates for people upgrading to a hacked Windows 8.1, Windows 8 or Windows 7. read more

Are screen savers necessary and are they still necessary?

Screen savers are a visual delight and there are many on the Internet. But are screen savers no longer necessary? A screen saver is nothing more than a computer program that fills the screen with abstract images or patterns. It is activated when the computer is not used for a certain period of time. The original idea was to prevent phosphor from burning on cathode ray tubes and plasma screens. But since most of us now use LCD monitors, they are mainly used for entertainment or security purposes.

If screensavers are more necessary

Colored and animated screensavers are beautiful and sometimes give you a feeling of freshness and enthusiasm. In the 90s and 2000s, they were abundant and those that were beautifully animated were madness. At the time, they were also needed because of the CRT monitors. But as we get closer to LCD monitors, screensavers are activated mainly for security reasons. read more
