I'm facing some strange problem for some time. whenever I create a new photoshop file I get the canvas and the whites in swatches displayed as a yellowish color (as shown on the right side). But when I open an existing image or choose "clipboard",  I get the white shown normal, as it is supposed to be. Where can I reset this? I don't know how it happened. I opened photoshop once some time ago, suddenly got it like on the right side.

 

Thanks in advance

This is most likely caused by a defective monitor profile. Photoshop relies on a sound and correct monitor profile to display correct colors. The profile may have become corrupted, or a Windows update has installed a low quality profile from the monitor manufacturer. These profiles are often defective out of the box.

 

As troubleshooting, and as a possible temporary fix, try setting the monitor profile to sRGB (use Adobe RGB if you have a wide gamut monitor). If this fixes the issue, it is recommended that you calibrate the monitor with a hardware calibrator. This will also create and install a custom monitor profile that describes your monitor accurately.

 

To set the monitor profile to sRGB, press the Windows key + R, type colorcpl in the box and press Enter.

Add the sRGB profile, then set it as default.
