So, my cat walks across my keyboard, and the next thing I know, everything on my display has flipped the negative. This only occurs on my user account, as soon as I switched to another, the color scheme was fine. How exactly do I revert the color scheme back to normal in my personal account?


MacBook Pro, Mac OS X (10.4.10)

    Welcome to the Forums!!

    Go to System Preferences > Universal Access > Seeing tab and click the radio button for Black on White. Or use the key combo your clever kitty found, which is ⌘-option-ctrl-8.

    Wow the exact same thing happened to me, and for the exact same reason! It's a cat conspiracy! But the solution posted fixed it for me. Thank you!

    Not just a conspiracy by cats, by 2 year-old toddlers, too. I'm so glad I came across your post, neuroanatomist! Screen color went negative after he went beserk on the keyboard and we were stuck in negative twilight zone for like 2 hours... I googled 'mac book pro display negative' and bam! THANK YOU!

    The same thing just happened to me only five days after getting my Macbook Pro. Google led me right to this forum thread, so thanks to neuroanatomist for the help.

    it a matter of the cats conspiring with each other, or the designers collaborating with the cats? Do they have a "cat's paw" at Apple?
