    Hi,

    Thank you for posting in Microsoft Community.

    I suggest you to apply the changes from the settings option in Windows 10 and check if it helps.

    1) Type High contrast settings in the search box and then click on High Contrast settings.

    • Locate the display driver.

    • Right-click on the display card listed and click on ‘Update Driver Software’
    Hope this helps. Please reply to us with the status of the issue.
