Monitor display has changed to Black and white

I have windows 10 on this PC and it is up to date
I am using 2 monitors on this system
When I start my PC the screen displays in color and allows me to login as usual
The home screen comes up in color and displays  all my icons properly
Both screens are displaying in color
Within about 30 seconds both of my screens change to display everything in black and white.
Whatever application I open displays the data in black an white.
This first stared when I was working in MS Word.
In Settings ofall themes display as B&W and all colors are shades of B&W

Any assistance to change this back to color would be appreciated
