How to enable Microsoft Teams high contrast mode

High contrast mode is often neglected in applications.

Whilst many applications now include a dark mode option, it’s much less common for them to include a high contrast mode, which is a shame if it’s something that you benefit from.

Fortunately Microsoft Teams does include a high contrast mode and it’s very easy to enable.

In this quick guide we’ll detail step by step how you go about switching to the high contrast mode from the standard light mode.
