  1. Issues with colour on display whenever I open an app or window


    I'm running Windows 10 Home 64 bit on a Lenovo Yoga Slim 7i, Intel Iris plus graphics If you need any more info to help me solve this issue, let me know.

    I've been having an issue over the past few days where when I open a window this happens frequently to basically anything that isn't directly part of the computer settings/control panel/etc. the colours on my entire screen not just the window, this also happens to my desktop background and taskbar become much more saturated and the contrast seems to have been increased also. This problem has even appeared when I open up the Start menu while I have another window open. I've followed a lot of advice I've found online given to people with similar issues, I've calibrated display settings and updated the drivers for my graphics card, but nothing seems to be working. I don't think this issue is to do with my laptop itself, as it is brand new and I only purchased it this month. I don't think I've downloaded anything that could be causing this, as I only use this laptop for schoolwork and I am the only person using it.

    Any advice for what else I could try to fix this issue?

    Thanks.

    :)

    Mail app will not open on 10041.

    Hello Adam,

    This is the suggested solution below if you haven't already tried it. Issues with colour on display whenever I open an app or window :)

    In this Windows 10 build 10041, the Mail, Calendar, and People apps may be broken due to a licensing issue with the Store Beta. To get these apps working again, you need to follow these steps:

    • Open powershell as administrator
    • Run the command Get-appxprovisionedpackage –online | where-object {$_.packagename –like “*windowscommunicationsapps*”} | remove-appxprovisionedpackage –online
    • Re-install Mail, People and Calendar from the Store (green tile)

    Mail app will not open on 10041.

    Hey Shawn,
    I did that to no avail, then I ran WSReset.exe; now I'm good on all 3, Mail, Calendar and People! *Confused
    Go figure!
