Help! My PC is in black and white

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

” 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!”

You could also go to the Start Menu type Settings and click on the results.

Then select Accessibility.

In the left panel, choose Color Filters.

Make sure the color filters and the option for a keyboard shortcut for color filters is turned off.
