SCREEN IS SO LIGHT IT IS DIFFICULT TO READ - HOW TO CHANGE

I have a Dell Inspiron 5748, Sn.[Admin NOTE: Service tag removed per TOU policy], 2 GHz Intel Core i7-451U, Win 10 Home (x64) version 16-7 (build 14393.693) and the screen is a very light blue color which makes it hard to read.

As I get older (don't laugh as it will happen to you) the light color and small font makes for difficult computer enjoyment.

I have tried everything I can think of but can't change to "black" and a larger font. I am using Internet Explorer but it doesn't seem to make any difference if I use FireFox. Someone seemed to think that I will need to download a "patch" to allow the Dell to change.

Does anyone have a suggestion or just a fix. I hate to go to Dell and pay a fee to find this out.

Thanks, Dan

Please remove your Service Tag. Never share the Service Tag number in an open forum like this.

You have a laptop but you posted in the Desktop forum.

Have you used the F11 and F12 keys to decrease/increase screen brightness?

Have you looked at the Display options page in Win 10 to change settings?
