I just got a brand new ASUS Transformer Book T100TA-C1-GR

Everything is working great, but for some reason native apps like Outlook and People are running the wrong color profile.

If I'm looking at office, or the desktop, and there's a white background, I see a nice pure white and vibrant colors.

If I then switch over to Outlook (ALT + TAB), the app initially looks great, but after a second or so, the white background switches over to some ugly faded yellow, and other colors look washed out.

I tried running through these steps: http://optimwise.com/fix-windows-photo-viewer-yellow-tint-background/

and then restarted the device.

It's still tinted yellow...

Any other solutions?

Under the default ASUS installed programs, there is one called Reading Mode. It changes the hue to that yellow/sepia color for Mail, News, and Reader. You can add others, but I hate it, and have removed those applications from this feature.

  • thank you so much!!!! that was driving me insane. I wrote an email to ASUS and they said I should reinstall windows and reset the device to factory default.... It's extremely frustrating that they would suggest something so inane when it's their own bloatware causing the problem
