its not a skin/background he just inverted the screen, useful when you dj outside

Most PCs, nope. Unless you have a good video card that has this option.

The white background helps out when you're doing a gig outdoors during the day.

do this and maybe for PC:
ALT + SHIFT + printscreen
The ALT and SHIFT have to be on the left side of your keyboard.

PC users can hold the power button down on your laptop for 5 seconds. This will do the same thing as OS X

so after tryin to find a way to make the screen change color meaning inverse color to white like the macs :(.I have finally found it. to the owners of a pc if you have that little windows button on the keyboard you shoud be good.now the way this works is magnifer must be on(i think it is on vista,it is on every windows 7,dont know about xp)anyway,easy way is to press window sign and either plus or minus sign(this turns on magnifier) then press ctrl+alt+i,is it white yet try it out and let me know,works on my compaq does it work on your pc.

^ Hahahaa yup. It worked on my W7 PC :)
supaxcite 8:40 PM - 20 April, 2010
thats good.now pass it on to fellow pc users. the long way is to go to control panel->ease of access center.from there you should be able to figure out the rest. sorry u mac guys.And no u dont need a certian type of video card, anyone should be able to do it as long as u have magnifer and the invert option,side note u can make a shortcut key for all of this so just take some time and get to know your pc windows 7 rulessssssssss

just in case anyone is looking for a better Windows alternative to the native Win7 Screen inversion, I use a program called "Negative screen": arcanesanctum.net

Tried that key combo for mac but nothing happened
I'm using 10.7.5 OSX and scratch live 2.4.4?
Any help would be appreciated

It would be nice if at least the cursor stood out more. as someone said abive, inverting the colors helps when outside... it would be nice for some other helps in the bright light.

Try going to System Preferences>Universal Access and change it manually

I'm not on my 10.7 mac at the moment but I think it is still there

I am using 10.9 and it won't change, any thoughts?
Konix 3:27 PM - 9 October, 2014
The keyboard shortcut is still there but is disabled by default.

Open up System Preferences and go into Keyboard on the second row. Then go into the Shortcuts tab and select Accessibility on the left. Then tick the Invert colors box. This will enable the short cut.

Thanks, that works great
