Hello :)

 

You all are my last hope.

 

 

Do you know how when you are searching for info and in the search results and the text for various websites is purple and not blue to let the person know that they have already clicked on that site before? My problem is that the purple is too faint and I have a hard time distinguishing between it and the standard blue color. I asked this question on the Microsoft Community, but with no luck. Anything you can do to help would be greatly appreciated.

 

 

Thank you.:)

It would be very helpful to know which browser you use.

Among other things to try, I recently have been testing Monitor Settings.  Some monitor have settings for this type of thing.  Some will have different Standard choices for color quality.  Gaming, Movie Watching etc.  Or the standard Contrast, Tint etc.  Though this may not be your issue.

 

When starting a Thread I always post my specs if I think it is pertinent.  Below is a tutorial that will help others help you.

This is a browser specific setting, so the browser you are using would be helpful.

 

You could also try increasing your monitor's Scaling.

 

Right click a blank space on your desktop and select Display Settings

Scroll down to Scale and layout and increase from the current percentage to a larger percentage.

 

This change will affect everything on that monitor.  It is possible to have a different setting for each monitor.

Please accept my apologies. I'm using chrome. My computer is an HP all-in-one desktop with no external monitor adjusting buttons and such.

No apologies necessary.

 

The Speccy Chart is very good for a forum type diagnosis as we can see all the hardware and software.  But you may have success with Kilroy's suggestions. 

 

The other thing that would be important would be the Exact Model number of the pc in question, and may be easier than running Speccy but may not tell as much about your situation. 

 

Is Chrome up to date?

 

Was this computer upgraded to Windows 10 from another OS? 

 

What kind of graphics Card?  Did you ever accept a Graphics Card Driver from Windows Update? 

 

Did you ever install any Themes?

 

Really to many questions IMO, so if you can pull it off learn to use the Speccy Tool.  While this may be browser specific, it's hard to tell from my point of view.

 

You may try this but I don't have it in Windows 7 with newest Chrome.  Don't know if this is Windows 10 Specific or not:

 

chrome://flags

and set #enable-color-correct-rendering to disabled.

Or

chrome://flags

#force-color-profile to sRGB

You may want to give this Chrome Extension a shot.

I understand. There are many questions required in order for you to nail the problem. I truly appreciate everyone's help and later on I will start trying the suggestions given here. By the way, what the hell is a speccy tool? lol

Speccy is a utility produced by Piriform and available as a free download from BC.

 

It provides an overview of the hardware and OS on your computer and is quite detailed in some areas. It details mobo, RAM, storage and ancillaries such as network cards, printers and so on. On the oS side it details the version and build, lists installed updates and which services are running and stopped. On top of that it provides a URL which can be copied/pasted into a post so that others can have a look at it. It is a very useful diagnostic tool and the URL contains no personal information.
