Sometimes your computer (Mac or Windows) will turn on “Dark Mode” (either you did it or the computer mystically did it on its own!).
Dark Mode sometimes messes up the text color in a browser like Chrome, Firefox or Edge. If your login boxes suddenly are shaded a different color, and it’s hard to see the text you’re typing, OR if you noticed the text you’re typing doesn’t show (because it’s white text on a white backgroun) then you should turn off Dark Mode.
On Windows, follow these instructions:
- Select Start > Settings .
- Select Personalization > Colors. …
- Under Choose your color, select Custom.
- Under Choose your default Windows mode, select Dark.
- Under Choose your default app mode, select Light or Dark.
On a Mac, follow these instructions:
Choose Apple menu > System Preferences, click General, then select one of the Appearance options at the top of the window:
- Light: Use the light appearance
If it’s not your OS that’s in Dark Mode, it might be your browser.
If you’re using Chrome or Edge try this:
- On the bottom-right corner of the Google Search page, click on “Settings.”
- Next, click on “Search Settings.” …
- On the left panel, click on “Appearance.” …
- Under “Turn Dark Theme on or off,” click on “Light Theme.”
If you’re using a different browser or these instructions don’t match your computer, try googling “How to turn off Dark Mode in x (where x is your operating system or browser)”.
