    Ever since a June/July update, desktop defaults to sepia/yellow tint


    So, I have been having this issue ever since an official update in June/July (cannot recall which one). I turn on the pc (Win 10 Home v. 2004, Build 19041.1110), and starting with the login screen, my desktop is tinted with a sepia/yellowish color, as if I had set up a custom color scheme. I can go into "System" - "Display", and turn on 'Use HDR' then turn it off again, and it sometimes fixes the issue. However if I reboot, or just go back into Settings, and click on either "System" or "Ease of Access", the sepia tint returns. (Both of those sub-menus open up on 'Display' options, fwiw.) A temporary fix I have found that works is in my NVidia Control Panel, if I go to "Adjust desktop color settings" and check the box marked, "Override to reference mode", after the sepia tinted login screen, the desktop will revert back to normal. Now, I have tested this with 3 different NVidia driver versions. I've used updated DDU applications with each install. And the problem persists regardless. I have not been able to find anyone else with this specific issue. Any help would be appreciated.

    :)

  3. Yellow tint after Windows 10 update

    This morning I received an update for my Windows 10 Home 64 bit (Windows 10 to Windows 10 update). After the update my screen has a yellow tint.

    I followed a previous suggestion to reboot in safe mode. It helped: the screen is normal white. When I reboot again to the normal mode, the yellow tint returned.

    Yellow tint on laptop screen

    Hello, my laptop screen has a yellowish tint to it since 30/07.

    On that day, I opened my laptop lid, and, as it had been sleeping for more than a day, the system and apps were kind of slow. My screen was normal then. I decided to restart the computer, something I've done many times before to fix the slowness. When it
    rebooted, the screen had the yellow tint to it (right at the sign in screen, it was especially noticeable because my wallpaper has a lot of yellow in it). Logged in, and it was still the same. To confirm, I opened WhatsApp Desktop and the color change was
    very noticeable, with the greens having an almost neon tone. On my browser (I use Edge on dark mode) all the gray and black tones were yellowish.

    Since then I've tried many "solutions" as suggested online:

    - Turning off Night Light - my night light is never on, but I turned it on and off just to be sure. Nothing changed.

    - I installed all pending updates (the only one left is Windows 2004, that I haven't downloaded yet). Nothing changed.

    - Changing color profile on color management - Nothing changed, even after restarting.

    - Calibrating colors on color management - this was a tricky one. I calibrated the colors, and they looked fine, "better" even. I thought they were back to normal, but it was just a placebo effect. I eventually restarted the computer and noticed the colors
    were off again, this time darker and redder (I know this is an issue with my calibrating, but it means I cannot change the colors back to normal - it's quite difficult to know for certain if I'm doing it "right"). After this, I deleted the calibrated color
    profile and changed it back to the system default (sRGB IEC61966-2.1 / sRGB Color Space Profile.icm). It went back to the yellow tint.

    - Calibrating colors on the Intel Control Panel - same issue as creating a personalized color profile, I can't quite judge when it is "just right". Went back to the defaults.

    - Checking for updates - on Device Manager, I right clicked the Intel(R) HD Graphics 620 driver and searched for updates, none were found.

    - I even created a different local user profile and signed in it, but it still had the same tint (not sure this would have changed, but wanted to at least try).

    - I connected the laptop to an external monitor (a TV). Some things happened - when only projected on the second screen, the colors were normal. When projecting on both screens, both had the yellow tone. After projecting on both and switching to only the
    second screen, the tint persisted. When switching from that to only the computer screen, the computer had the yellow tone. Finally, from there, switching to only the second screen, the colors went back to normal.

    What I haven't done, although suggested online - installed Windows 2004, uninstalling and reinstalling the graphics driver, booting in safe mode, checking the colors on BIOS screen.

    Is there anything else I can do? The tint does not make any app unusable, but it is still very uncomfortable on the eyes.
