    Weird black border..
    Yesterday I was using command+shift+4 and somehow it managed to 'grab' a box from the web page I was copying from. Below are two of the results !

    The result is now that I have a black border on whatever box it seems to attache itself to either whatever page I am on or an icon on the desktop. Also the apple menu is showing two of certain commands (Pictures below)





    This black border can appear anywhere on a web page or even on its own on the desk top.

    I have run through Onyx.

    Any suggestions please

    Hi,


    can you tell me how you sorted it? I seem to have done the exact same thing!

    Sorry sorted it myself. I accidently hit command and F5 and activated voice over which includes the black boarders etc. Just hit command and F5 again to cancel it.

    Just in case anybody searches for this thread

    That black border feature is for users with impaired sight

    It can be switched off by going to the system preferences and turning Voice over off in the Universal access preference pane
