    Hi,

    I have managed to make the screen on my G4 imac show as a 'photo negative' rather than the normal color screen - does anyone know how I can change it back to the normal settings - have looked into Preferences but cant work out how to do it.

    Thanks in advance!

    Control+Option+Apple+8

    (or System Prefs->Universal Access -> Display)

    Thanks - I am a bit of a techno-phobe - which key is the option one?

    It hasn't been labelled "Option" for years, if ever.

    Ah, an important missing piece of the puzzle.


    Guess so. I've never had a (Mac) keyboard that wasn't labeled with Option. :)
