Are you tired of the yellow tint on your Windows 10 screen? Here’s how I solved it.
Troubleshooting Methods for Yellow Screen Issue
If you are experiencing a yellow tint on your Windows 10 screen, there are a few troubleshooting methods you can try to resolve the issue.
1. Adjust color settings: Open the Color Management window by searching for it in the Start menu. Click on the “Advanced” tab and select “Change system defaults”. Check the box that says “Use Windows display calibration” and click on “OK”.
2. Update graphics drivers: Outdated or incompatible graphics drivers can sometimes cause display issues. To update your graphics drivers, go to the manufacturer’s website and download the latest drivers for your graphics card.

Rolling Back OS Update as a Last Resort
Rolling back an OS update should be your last resort when trying to solve the yellow tint issue on your Windows 10 screen. It is important to note that this method may result in the loss of some data, so it is crucial to have a backup of your important files beforehand.

6. Once the rollback process is complete, your computer will restart, and the previous version of Windows 10 will be restored.
Keep in mind that this method may not always solve the yellow tint issue, as it could be caused by other factors such as monitor calibration or display settings. If rolling back the OS update does not resolve the problem, it may be necessary to seek further troubleshooting techniques or consult a professional for assistance.
import pygetwindow as gw
def change_window_color(window_title, color):
window = gw.getWindowsWithTitle(window_title)
print("Window not found!")
# Usage example
This code uses the `getWindowsWithTitle` method from the `pygetwindow` library to find a window with a specific title. It then uses the `set_border_color` method to change the window’s border color to the specified value. Lastly, it activates the window to apply the changes.
