Being legally blind in left eye, now right eye is blurry. My Windows 7 scrollbars' grays "blend together" and are difficult to see.

How can I either change to two colors or to two contrasting grays?

Can you explain what "Sidebar" you are referring to? Maybe a screenshot? Windows 7 does not have a "Sidebar" (Windows Vista does though). – Rain May 14 '13 at 3:48
@Rain I think its about the Scroll Bar. – Ankit Mishra May 14 '13 at 6:03
Yes, the Scroll Bar! – Betty May 14 '13 at 13:05
Have you tried high contrast themes available in Personalization? – Alexey Ivanov May 14 '13 at 18:10

Windows includes high contrast themes for people with vision troubles...

In Windows 7 you can toggle High Contrast mode with Left Shift+Left Alt+Print Screen.

You can select and permanently enable a high contrast theme as well. Just right-click a blank area of the Desktop and choose "Personalize". Scroll down a bit and there should be a few different "Basic and High Contrast Themes" to choose from.

Bless you all! I will "play" with them until I find something that works. I also have Alzheimer's and get a bit confused. I'll ask my son to help me:) – Betty May 14 '13 at 21:30
