Adjusting contrast!

It is possible to adjust the contrast on screen using a rather complicated shortcut. The info about the shortcut is located in the Keyboard Shortcuts section of System Preferences. The shortcut to increase contrast is "Ctrl - Option - Command - . ". Decreasing contrast is done with "Ctrl - Option - Command - , ".

Very cool. I've had Macs for more than 10 years and have never known that contrast could be adjusted. I assume that the range is from normal/default to extreme? There is no gauge that shows you where you are on the scale if you adjust it. I assume one starts off at the bottom edge of the adjustment? Having adjusted it I have no idea where it started out other than a rough estimate, which is fine.

This might come in handy when I use EyeTV since the picture I get is darker than what I get on my TV. At least it gives me more options to fine tune the pic with.

Lipwak, cássio: check System Preferences -> Universal Access. There you'll find the contrast slider, along with its keyboard accelerators.

I have an imac G4, and would like to restore it to its original settings like when you first got it.
Does any know how to do this?
F.Y.I. - I don't have the OSX discs so is there a way to do this without the discs?
