Help with "applied visuals"

"Adjust the Hover State of an Anchor Tag

I have tried all other forum posts, even had a professional programmer look this over.
Tried substituting “black” for “#000” .
Makes absolutely no sense to me.
Seeing as many others have problems with this one,
I recommend updating this lesson to be more user-friendly…

Code so far:

<style>
  a {color:#000} 
  a:hover  {color:blue;}
</style>
<a href="https://freecatphotoapp.com/" target="_blank">
CatPhotoApp</a>

The lesson is working fine for me. The code you posted is correct.

Yes you are correct.
I had a High-Contrast mode enabled in Windows 10.
Turned it off and everything worked fine.
Seems to only affect lessons involving colors.
