    Computer monitor is suddenly gray scale instead of color?

    I must be missing something obvious here, but so far I'm utterly baffled: my computer monitor has suddenly gone gray scale on me!?!

    Same with both the laptop screen and an external display.

    Yet on start-up, the password screen is color as always: but as soon as I enter my password and enter Windows, all is gray scale.

    I've looked at the Windows 10 Settings for Display and Personalization, yet nothing seems wrong there.

    Trend Micro gives me a clean bill of health.

    To make this even more frustrating, after I finish up some "real" work today I had been planning to revise some of the course maps for my skimo races:

    ... so as to finish up my U.S. skimo ass'n sanctioning applications, but the color-coding is essential, arghh!

    Thanks in advance for any feedback, whether practical solutions to fix the problem or just entertaining commentary so I can at least get some amusement value out of this situation!
    For those stuck in the Northeast, check out the NE Rando Race Series and my avalanche course. (For other avalanche course providers anywhere, feel free to use any of my "homework" assignments for your own courses too.)

    What about your color profiles settings? Is it possible you managed to switch the display into a greyscale colorspace / ICC profile somehow?

    Or did you enable Color Filter Mode? (c.f. https://paulrobichaux.com/2017/10/06...r-filter-mode/)

    ^ Wow, thanks -- all fixed now!

    And this explanation:
    For ease of use, Microsoft tied it to a key combination: the Windows key + Ctrl + C. I must have accidentally bumped the Windows key while copying my quote.
    ... sounds especially likely, since it happened in the middle of copying a lot of text back-and-forth from SkiReg.com pages for four similar races, and also sending out similar emails to the different venues for course marking.
    Okay, now to design a Berkshire East course that will be easy to follow yet provide even more challenge than last year's suffer fest!
