    Snipping Tool Has Orange Tint Now


    Hi everyone, I'm an avid user of the Snipping Tool which was working perfectly up until yesterday (I believe this has to do with me installing updates but not sure which specific Driver is causing this issue).

    All of a sudden, whenever I screenshot something or even Print Screen and paste - my screen is showing an orange tint.

    I've attached a screenshot below, as well as recent information about my software and laptop. Can someone please assist?

    I have a 6th Gen Lenovo X1 Carbon, x-64 based processor, with Windows 10 Home Version 1809 installed. My Display Driver is an Intel(R) UHD Graphics 620 - version 26.20.100.6860

    Thanks in advance!Snipping Tool Has Orange Tint Now-screenshot-example.jpg

    Are you using F.lux? There were some problems with that combo in the past.

    Apologies for not mentioning that in my initial post - that's the weird thing. I'm not using F.lux (nor do I have it installed). Neither do I have Night Mode on.

    Forgot to say Hi and welcome to Tenforums.

    Can you check which drivers you updated yesterday? You can check it in Reliability history (fastest I think...)

    Could be monitor definitions

    Update: go to settings in Intel driver and disable color accuracy

    No problem, I really appreciate the quick replies - I'm not familiar with the Reliability Monitor but this week: I had 3 Critical Events (Adobe Notification Client Stopped working, FwUpudateCmd stopped working), 5 Warnings (mostly around IntelMediaSDKDFP Failed Windows Update), and 21 Informational Events (attached screenshot of these below):

    Do you have any of the following enabled:

    Dark Mode, HD Color, Transparency?

    Can you record a video of what is going on? You can do a step by step still with Xbox Game Recorder, since Steps Recorder is discontinued.

    No problem - I had Dark Mode and Transparency turned on initially but the problem still persists even when I turn it off (which you can see within the video I attached).

    Additionally, I show my HD Color screen - nothing stuck out to me on that end but let me know if you see anything.

    Lastly, despite the video showing the error produced on my two monitors - I can confirm this also happens when I unplug my HDMIs and try to take a screenshot just on my laptop's screen.

    You can view the video here.

    I would check these things:
    -Lenovo could have some own blue light filtering setting
    -Intel video drivers - check that color accuracy setting, if not, uninstall them and reinstall from Lenovo site.
    -Display drivers - go to Displays, advanced and check, if any monitor has special color profile enabled.

    So I believe the blue light setting Lenovo has is called "Night light" - I confirmed I don't have this on.
    As for the Intel video drivers, how do I check the color accuracy setting? Also, which driver and version do you suggest I uninstall / reinstall from Lenovo?

    As for my Display settings - color profile looks normal as it's RGB

    Lenovo has its own utility for drivers update. But start with settings in Intel drivers - like you saw on the other thread here you posted

    i don't have my Intel system here at the time. Can't recollect settings from memory..
