QWS3270 - Cannot Read Screen due to Dark Backgrounds

This document describes how to change the default color scheme in QWS3270.


Frequently, 3270's default background is black, which makes it hard to read printouts and/or read it on the screen.


The easiest fix is to change the background to white and the text to black. To change the background, text, and other colors:

  1. Go to Options, then Session.

  2. Select the Color tab.

  3. Switch Background to white and all others to black.
