Tech Friday: Lenovo, Eye Care and Snipping Tool backgrounds

Posted By on September 20, 2019

Today’s Tech Friday tip is something that has changed in recent weeks likely due to an update that is suppose to make reading on devices easier on the eyes. Based on lighting conditions, automatic settings will filter out blue light — a lot more when the room is dark.


The problem is that this can impact other software such as the screen snipping tools that have become universal in daily computer productivity. In my case, the temporary fix was to turn off the "Eye Care" feature or just move the slider back and forth in Lenovo Vantage (on my Lenovo 710). Hopefully this post will show up in a search if you are having and provide a quick but temporary fix until the problem is addressed.



Desultory - des-uhl-tawr-ee, -tohr-ee

  1. lacking in consistency, constancy, or visible order, disconnected; fitful: desultory conversation.
  2. digressing from or unconnected with the main subject; random: a desultory remark.
