I accidently asked for high contrast.  I don't like it.  I can't find a way to return to the original setting. I am a novice in Windows 10, so if you have a solution for me, please explain to me...understanding that I am no geek.  Thank you.

Hi Enidtoo :)

To control the contrast/brightness in Windows 10, simply go in the Control Panel, enter Power Plan in the search box in the top-right corner and then click on Power Plan when it appears. Once done click on Change plan settings by the plan that is currently selected and adjust the brightness/contrast there.

Simple fix
From your start menu...
Open Settings > Open Personalization > Open Colors > Open High Contrast Settings...
In the dropdown box under Choose A Theme, Select None.
Click Apply and you should be at the previous settings before choosing High Contrast.

Better still, pick the one theme you're offered which has the pictures and colors, in the middle set of boxes.


Top set is the themes you created.  Middle is the defaults.  Lowest one is the High Contrast series.  Just right-click on Desktop, click Personalize, and the look in the MIDDLE SET for the theme which shows pictures.  That theme will need further tweaking, and you cannot do much, but one of its good features is that it matches the colors to the pictures.  The pictures, are in Windows/Web/Wallpaper, so put more pictures in there and you may end up liking the result.
