I clicked on the center of the screen (Windows 10) and the background turned black. Now all text is reversed out on a black background. How do I get it back to normal?

Technician's Assistant: What's the make and model of your machine? And how long has the screen been an issue?

HP — how do I find the "model"?

Technician's Assistant: Have you installed any updates recently?

No

One Happy CustomerNew York

I am very happy with my very fast response. Eric is very knowledgeable in the subject area. Thank you!

RPAustin, TX

Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill
