Customer Question
I don't know...

I don't know what I did to change it, but my Skype screen changed to black with white letters. How can I get it to change back to a white screen with black letters

Technician's Assistant: Is your Skype file saved to cloud storage services like Dropbox, Google Drive, or OneDrive?

No

Technician's Assistant: Anything else you want the Microsoft Office Expert to know before I connect you?

I have been using skype for years and this never happened before. It is very hard to read this way.

Hi JACUSTOMER-72aj755x,

Thanks for using JustAnswer. I am happy to assist you with this issue. Below are the instructions to fix this issue:

  • Open Skype
  • Click on the circle at the top left, which is your profile picture
  • Click on settings
  • Scroll down through the list until you get to "Choose Mode"
  • Click on the mode you desire. It is probably either Light Mode or Windows default mode that you are looking for.
  • Scroll to the top and use the back arrow to exit.

Let me know if that works for you or if you have any questions.

Regards,

Sheri-Expert

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
