Increasing the contrast makes elements such as text and buttons stand out better against the background making them easier to distinguish.
To increase the contrast
- Open ‘Accessibility Preferences’: Apple Menu > System Preferences > Accessibility. (See the article Open Accessibility Preferences on this website for more information.)
- In the left-hand column, under the ‘Vision’ section, select display ‘Display’.
- Next, check the box for ‘Increase contrast.
- When you are happy with your settings click the ‘Close’ (red) button at the top of the ‘Accessibility’ window or press ‘Cmd’ + ‘W‘ to close the window.
Note: If this does not work it could be because your computer settings are managed by someone else (an IT department or administrator for example) in which case you will need to contact them to access these settings or for further help.
