    Lost Coloring When Login To Windows 10

    I have Windows 10 with nVidia graphic card (680 Boost Ti) that has been working just fine for all these years. I was working within my default browser (Firefox) and accidentally hit multiple keys (I think a combination of Windows key, Ctrl, and bunch of others I can't figure out for the life of me)... but what happened was that I lost coloring when I'm logged in (see attachment).

    I know it's not the monitor that went bad all of a sudden, and here is why. When I lock the screen, the default Windows screen image comes up and it is grayed, just like when I'm logged in, but when I hit the space key to enter password, the image gets its coloring back, but when I finally is logged in, everything in Windows, doesn't matter what application, doesn't have a coloring.

    I reinstalled my graphic card's driver hoping it would solve the issue. I went through Color Management, but didn't see anything out of ordinary.

    Does anyone know how to fix this issue, or reset whatever setting values to default? This is really annoying. Not sure why Windows allows such mock up to even happen.

    Hello Jalvin, and welcome to Ten Forums. :)

    It looks like you may have color filters turned on. If so, turning this off should fix this for you.

    Thank you. That resolved the issue (I can see color now). I'm wondering what key combination could have turned this on!

    A nice combination for a prank directed to my work colleague.
