In all the time I've been working with computers I could never tolerate it. Even back in the 90's I customized everything I could to use a color scheme with a dark background and bright text.

I dislike light modes too. I set everything to dark modes if possible, though I'll begrudgingly tolerate them if there's no other choice. I personally prefer colour schemes with slightly less contrast, though, like Visual Studio's dark theme, where the background is a dark grey and the text is a dim/faded white, almost a very light grey.

It's probably me but I never understood the whole fuss nowadays about the whole 'yeah, we now have a darkmode' thing and why it is apparently so "difficult" to implement it. I know that it happens with browser queries and the likes (I'm a mapper, not a programmer) and what-not but an odd twenty years ago, it was just a simple setting that you could select and it just worked (unlike someone else who has used the phrase). I'm probably too old for this . . .

Even more appalling is how programs like Unity, until very, very recently, monetized the editor's dark mode. :mrgreen: It was one of the last things they held on to their dear life after almost every major game engine went free-to-use (and shipped with dark mode out the box)...

If you did not disable its accessibility key, win + kp+ will activate the magnifier, you can then use win + kp- to bring its zoom level down to 100%, and then after that, press "ctrl-alt-i" to invert the screen. Might be handy.


Is it just me or does the magnifier lag like shit? Also, how do I disable it again?

Oh nvm lol

I don't have problems with it lagging. If you have an older system though, then yeah I can imagine that might be an issue.
