My screen switched to a black background after cleaning. I want it back to the default background

HP Notebook
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I had no error messages and no software performance issues but my background is now black and all text appears in white whether I reading Google news or typing in MS Word.

@Scepticom

 

"Cleaning"??  

 

Perhaps you have accidentally switched to a High Contrast display setting.

 

IF that is the case, you can select / (re)set your colours, background, themes, and the like:

 

Windows key > Settings > Personalisation / Personalization (depending on region).

 

 

My own experience says it is sometimes difficult to get out of the high contrast setup -- it may take a couple of tries to successfully squash the display's insistence on using it.

 

 

If you are talking about having "cleaned" the computer exterior (or Interior) and you have in some way damaged the display itself, setting the colours / themes / background won't have any affect.
