A reader’s got a problem with his PC’s display.

“I have Windows 10 with the latest updates. For some reason, my almost-new Acer monitor (or the computer itself?) has defaulted to a black and white display and I cannot get a color display back. I have gone to color management in the Control Panel). I have unsuccessfully tried to find a Windows forum for help but no luck. Help!”

My guess is that you may have accidentally hit the wrong keys while trying to copy something. If you hit the Windows key + Ctrl+ C, you turn your screen to black and white. The good news is that if you hit the Windows key + Ctrl + C again, it should turn back to color. If you aren’t familiar with the Windows key, it looks similar to the image below:

You could also go to the Start Menu and choose Settings.

Then select Ease of Access.

In the left panel, choose Color and high contrast.

Make sure the color filter is turned off.
