Want to invert the display colors on your Mac? Read on for three ways to turn on this accessibility feature.
Inverting the colors of your display offers greater visibility to some users, particularly with low or impaired vision. However, you may also want to use inverted colors for a variety of other reasons as well, like viewing webpages with a dark theme.
How to invert the display colors on your Mac
- Activate Siri by either clicking the icon in the top right corner of the menu bar, tapping the Siri icon on MacBook Pro machines with a Touch Bar or using “Hey Siri” on compatible Macs

- Use the keyboard shortcut command + option + control + 8
- If it doesn’t work, go to System Preferences → Keyboard → Shortcuts → Accessibility → Invert Colors and check the box next to it
- You should be all set to use the keyboard shortcut now
