    Windows 8 Mail changes screen color.color profile problem?


    Hello,

    I'm updating a friend's computer. It already came with Windows 8.1. It's an Asus Transformer T100.

    I have this strange problem. Normally, the screen has the correct color and brightness. However, whenever I'm using Windows Mail (Windows 8 app), the screen will change to this yellowish/grayish hue or tint. I switch to another app or a desktop program and the screen returns to normal. Only with this app do I have this problem!

    I went to color profiles and management to see if it was a setting. I'm not very familiar with color profiles so I didn't do anything. I did run the screen calibration utility. No fix.

    I turned off adaptive brightness.

    It's just Windows 8 Mail that has the problem!

    I found out what's the problem is.

    Asus has a utility called Asus Reading Mode or something like that. You can add apps to that list and any apps on that list will cause the screen to change color to make it more readable I suppose. You can disable the feature by flipping the toggle switch in the app. Then all the apps will maintain the correct screen color.
