Is there any way to make Logos look like the following screenshot in Windows 7 Pro?

If use Aero in Windows 7 => http://arcanesanctum.net/negativescreen/

Logos wiki => Night Mode

KS4J:

Great tip. I didn't know about that. I had fiddled with High Contrast themes, but it felt like I was working in DOS 2.01; Excel was the biggest problem, since under the High Contrast themes, I couldn't figure out how to make highlights in cells display and make different font colors show.

Since I have "bad eye days" and "better eye days":  if Magnifier is pinned to the Taskbar, it's easy and fast to go back and forth.

BTW, this works fine in Windows 10.

Win7 Android 4.4.2

Keep Smiling 4 Jesus :):
Logos wiki => Night Mode

THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU!!! This simple solution makes Logos usable for me again.. Getting the fonts just right, this cuts out the light sensitivity that plagues my eyes when I tried to use Logos with its standard colors.

Be blessed KS4J!!

Another Aero alternative is using Negative Screen

Personally like color combination options of Negative Screen, which works across all Windows applications: e.g. writing this reply with red letters on black background Win+Alt+F9 (instead of black letters on a white background).  Also have experienced Magnifier resizing of windows when using lens mode.

WikiHow had Negative Screen link => http://www.wikihow.com/Invert-Colors-on-Windows-7

Negative Red is Win+Alt+F9

Had a chance to try Negative Screen tonight... FANTASTIC. The f3 mode is just simply perfect for my needs. Thanks again, KS4J.

+1 Yes Thankful for Negative Screen, which is now pinned to my Windows 7 taskbar.  Concur Smart Inversion of Black and White while keeping colors is FANTASTIC plus like Negative Red (Win+Alt+F9), especially in the evening so screen is darker.
