    You hit a keystroke combination while cleaning. Hit Ctrl-Winkey-C and your color will come back!

    Hello Howdog, and welcome to Ten Forums. :)

    It sounds like you may have turned on Color Filters by mistake pressing the Win+Ctrl+C keys while cleaning. The default color filter is "Greyscale" for what you're seeing.

    Pressing those keys again will turn it off.
