  1. OMG thank you so much. This worked.

    “I tried this but i couldn’t click the apply so i found another way …
    even tho my “night light” was off i clicked “night light settings” then i dragged the bar all the way to the left and its gone.
    Yo find the night light on the display settings”

  2. I’ve had the W10 yellow tint problem on my laptop for a few years – very frustrating!
    I just solved it using Fix 3 – Restore Display Colour settings.
    Fix 3, leads to the chip manufacturers own setting screen, in my case an Intel screen.
    I adjusted the Contrast and Brightness for each colour, using the sample picture.
    Adjusting the contrasts created the biggest improvement.
    Then saved my new settings, applied them, restarted the machine, and eureka!
    Many thanks,

  3. I had the same problem Yellow tint to screen. My monitor cable was loose and falling out. I reinstalled and tightened screws. All is well and back to white background.

  4. As soon as I click on and open a photo (say) of a beach shot, the blue sky becomes yellowish in about half a second when I use Microsoft Photos. I followed all the instructions in this blog by Sambit Kolay (thanks for a very well structured set of instructions that any child or even senior citizens like me can follow, understand and implement) but unfortunately with no result. The pictures still turn yellowish in half a second flat. The sky is still not blue. 🙁
    What more should I do?
    Incidentally, as Lucas Hazel said, the “apply” button is not clickable for me either.

  6. There is an option night light settings in case you are unable to apply the settings as mentioned above and click on turn off now and click ok ,the yellow tint will disappear.

  7. My screen turned bright yellow, tried looking on internet, tried all the tips. Finally figured it out, my power cable to the monitor had almost fallen out of the back of the monitor. All I did was push the cable back in and, voila, screen was fine.

  8. I tried this but i couldn’t click the apply so i found another way …
    even tho my “night light” was off i clicked “night light settings” then i dragged the bar all the way to the left and its gone.

  9. I got all the way to the end where it says “Hit apply and than hit ok to save your changes”.
    But the apply button isnt clickable so i dont know if the changes were made (I still have yellow screen)
