  1. Hi, is therea shortcut key to turn on/off negative colors? Thanks!

    1. Hi Mike,
      Thanks for coming.
      CMIIW, there no shortcut key to toggle negative colours. But, you can access the accessibility menu more faster by choosing "Accessibility" under the "Show shortcut" option in the accessibility menu in Settings. Once you've done, now you can more faster accessing the Negative colours option by long pressing the Power key> tap Accessibility> enable or disable Negative colours.
      Hope this helps :)
