The response that the background color and test cannot be changed makes no sense. My background color is white with black text, which is easy for me to read. The program my 93 year old father loaded onto his computer has a black background color with white text. Given the disparity between the two otherwise similar Turbo Tax programs, there must be a way to change the background color and text. How can I do this for my father?
You can try the solutions posted below. If that does not work, you may want to reach out to TurboTax customer service for assistance:
Turbo Tax requires a minimum screen resolution of 1024x768 to display text and images properly. The text in TurboTax is mostly black. Where you would see grey on white is where you would type, for example, the Search Box. See below for a suggestion that may help with your particular system.
You can adjust the brightness and contrast of your monitor to improve the readability of text. Some monitors have brightness and contrast controls on the front (see image below). Or you can follow the instructions below to adjust the setting.
Windows 10 - Open the Settings app from your Start menu or Start screen, select “System,” and select “Display.” Click or tap and drag the “Adjust brightness level” slider to change the brightness level.
Windows 7 or 8 - this option available in the Control Panel >Appearance and Personalization>Display>Calibrate Color
MAC - Choose Apple menu > System Preferences, click Displays, then click Display. Drag the Brightness slider to adjust the brightness of your display.
