The most frustrating, annoying, and useless option/bug in the Windows Photo Viewer, is when it changes the sweet white background to an ivory off-white tint. Get rid of it by doing the following steps.
1. Open control panel
2. Type color in the search bar and click on the green color management link
3. Check off the box under your monitor name which says “use my settings for this device”
4. Click on the add button
5. There will appear a list of color profiles. You want to select sRGBIEC611966-2.1 and click OK
6. Click on the set as default profile button and then close button
Some have mentioned that they are not all experiencing this. From further investigation, seems to be mostly with Samsung monitors.
