Staring at a bright, white computer screen all day makes my eyes hurt. But I do it — like most of you — for the sake of my manuscript, since I make the most progress while typing away in Microsoft Word.
This week, I made a change to my screen, one that seems minor but has helped decreased my end-of-the-day eye aches. Instead of writing on Word’s white screen with black type, I switched the settings to a dark blue background with white text.
How? Click Tools, then Options, then General, then Blue background.
Try it. It took a bit of getting used to, but I’m telling you, this has made all the difference.
Anybody else have tips like this, ideas for small changes that really boost your progress?
