Lost color from Win 10 & all apps

computer fine this morning, logged into windows 10 and now there is no color - the Windows "pane" logo at startup does appear in color but when Windows 10 loads, it's in B&W I have a Radeon RX460 graphics card in a Cyberpower PC with 2 monitors - 1 connected by DVI, the other by HTMI - where did the color go?

Check in device manager to see if any exclamation marks against your graphics drivers.

Looks like while working you accidentally enabled grayscale mode.

Press CTRL+Windows+C and it should revert back to colour.
