    My son was playing with my MacBook pro keyboard and im not sure what buttons he pushed but now everything on my screen apears to be inverted, or what might better be described as everything is displayed in negative, like a photo negative. Could you please help me put my sceen back to normal.

    You can also check under Universal Access as well.

    Press Control + Option + Command (Apple Key) + 8

    Does that help?
    I know people who will do that to other's computers when they aren't looking...It's: funny. The first time. Not the 359th. haha

    EDIT: we're all just eager to help, aren't we?!

    It inverts the colors to provide higher contrast.

    I use it to reduce eyestrain.

    i bet it is much lower as it is quite clear that lots of people know about it already.

    What is more funny if you put the screen in Black and White mode. But it could backfire because some people still think that Macs cannot display Color graphics.
