1:06 /

Veronica shows you how to spice up your desktop or play a prank on your friends with today's Tekzilla Daily Tip.

[ Sound effects] ^M00:00:08 >> Hey everyone, welcome to Tekzilla Daily, I'm Veronica Belmont [assumed spelling]. Today's Tekzilla Daily comes courtesy of longtime viewer Rueben, he writes, "I found a fun little trick for MAC's. You could put your screen in negative by holding Ctrl, Option Cmd 8 and it's the same combo to reverse it. It's fun to prank friends who don't know how to turn it off." Well, aren't you just cubicle mate of the year? Windows has a similar feature called Hide Contrast designed to make your screen and everything on it more visible and easier to see. It doesn't invert your pictures but it does enlarge certain icons and fonts too. That can be activated by pressing Alt, Left Shift and Print Screen, so next time you want to add some extreme contrast to your desktop, or just want to play a prank on your friends and coworkers, keep this shortcut in mind. Got a tip for us to pass along to the rest of the Tekzilla crew? E-mail us at www.tekzilla@revision3.com and as always www.tekzilla.com. It's the place to find more tips, tricks, product reviews, and how-tos. >>Oh, my God! ^E00:01:06
