Proseries update for 2020 and 2021 turned the input screen on all tax returns green

I just did a ProSeries 2020 update  and installed the 2021 tax program. Once the updates finished all of my input screens appear in a green color. This makes it more difficult to read. Is there any way to fix it?

Yes.  Its a new feature for the prior year program, so you can tell it apart from 2021 easier when youre bouncing back and forth between years.

personally, I like it. I wish we could change and customize the background color for all the years!

What I do with new employees, is turn off the color of the entry boxes in the prior year's return. That makes it a little harder to make mistakes. 

If it ain't broke, they'll break it.

Thats what Ive done as well...its subtle, but its enough of a difference to get your attention that something looks weird.
