To me the colors of visited and unvisited links are so close, a lot of the time I cannot tell the difference. I tried changing the setting in Tools\InternetOptions\Colors to bright red but it had no effect at all. Does anyone know how to do this?

Tried and got the links working but not without causing other issues so he gave up.

So, I'm not sure it's possible to make it work smoothly.

Also it varies by web page. Experts-Exchange is lighter blue visited / darker blue new (not visited). My own home page is purple visited / blue new (not visited). It is getting more difficult (soft indistinguishable colours are cool with developers who are either wet behind the ears, or who have nothing to do). It used to be simple.
