The text in the Microsoft Chat member list may be difficult to see, or may not be visible at all.


The system colors are set to a dark background with a light font.


Change the system colors to a light background with a dark font. To do so, follow these steps:

  1. Click Start, point to Settings, click Control Panel, and then double-click Display.
  2. Click the Appearance tab.
  3. In the Item box, click Window.
  4. In the Item Color box, click a light background color.
  5. In the Font Color box, click a dark font color, and then click OK.


The member list background is always white because it does not use the system colors. When you set the system colors to a dark background with light text, the text in the member list is difficult to see.
