    The pictures in My Documents and my personal file have become barley discernable with the colours totally wrong. I was playing with the properties selection on my desktop screen and was changing the colours on the Apperance tab on the Display Properties drop down screen. When I went back to My Pictures I found the colours all. How can I restore the correct colours? Is there some default button I can use?

    It sounds like you have just set the color display to 16 colors. Go back into the display properties and set the colors to 256 or High color (16 bit)

    Thank you Lurker1 for your info. I did what you said to do and it worked perfectly. Also cleared up some icon colours I was having.
