    Hi

    My screen, when i start up windows and see all my apps/programs, has gone from a nice blue colour to some sort of lilac/gray. This is on my new build but I also had the same issue on my old pc.

    Is this some Windows 10 or Nvidea mess?

    I'm using a 2070 super on a Dell S2716DG

    Cheers

    With one of the latest Windows updates there are some new "Night Light" options under Settings > System > Display..

    Might be worth checking!

    Hi

    Thanks, the night mode was switched off. I'm pretty sure a Windows update has done it.

    What happens if you open something like notepad? Is the writing area white?

    Check that the accent colour hasn't been changed from default blue to grey.
