Suddenly color gone in Windows? Black and white? Try this!

Some people report an exceptional problem where the screen suddenly turns black and white. This happens without adjusting display settings, video card drivers, or installing third-party software.

For no reason, the screen suddenly changes to black and white in Windows 11 or Windows 10. Nothing happens without reason.

Suddenly black and white color in Windows 11

This key combination is then accidentally pressed and sets the screen to monotone colors.

In Windows 11 or Windows 10, “accessibility” features are available. These features can support users with a variety of limitations. For example, there is also an accessibility feature, which (when enabled) can change the colors in Windows from standard color to black and white and back with a key combination.

This is the Windows + CTRL + C key combination. For example, suppose you have the following feature enabled below and press this key combination. In that case, you will see that all colors in Windows disappear.

Suddenly color is gone in Windows? Black and white? Try this!

First, press the key combination Windows key + CTRL + C. This is solved if the colors come back and black and white disappear.

Now to prevent it from happening again, right-click on the Start button. In the menu, click Settings. Then, on the left side, click Accessibility and then Color Filters.

Now change the “Keyboard shortcut for color filters” option to “Off”.

Keyboard shortcut for color filters

The color filters hotkey is what can make the colors in Windows 11 or Windows 10 disappear by using the key combination Windows key + CTRL + C.

I suspect that because it looks much like CTRL + C, people sometimes press it wrong and accidentally press this color filter keyboard shortcut.

I hope to have helped you with this. Thanks for reading!
