How to fix Windows 11 Black and White Screen issue

Seeing the full-color screen suddenly turning into a black and white screen on your Windows PC can be a dull experience. The color needs to be restored so that it looks normal.  Very often it could be due to a change in the Display setting on your PC where the Grayscale color may be activated.  This feature was added in Windows 10 to help people with disabilities such as Color Blindness or sensitivity to light. Let us see how to get back to default colorful mode.
