Note that a yellowish tint isn't necessarily indicative of the wrong monitor profile. It could be color settings on the monitor itself.

Also, using the wrong monitor profile can show up in multiple ways such as any kind of tint or images being too bright/not bright enough.

Removing Color Profiles

  • Select the desired monitor in Device, check the Use my settings for this device box, select the desired color profile, and click on the Remove button at the bottom.
