How to get Windows 8 out of high contrast mode?

My son was using my Windows 8 laptop and managed to set it to high contrast mode. When I changed the settings in ease of access, it stayed in high contrast mode. Anyone ran into this and figured out how to fix it?

The SHORTCUT KEY for turning ON/OFF high contrast mode is... left SHIFT+left ALT+PrintScreen

From Microsoft Community Answers:

"Go to your start page, then click on desktop.  Once you get to your desktop, RIGHT CLICK on the screen.  A small box will open to the right of the pointer.  Click on PERSONALIZE.  Then click on the WINDOWS theme under the 3 default windows themes.  You will click on the one with the flower on it.  This will turn off you high contrast."
