I accidentally pressed either Ctrl or Alt or Shift and some letter on my laptop and now my whole screen has this yellowish layer. When I pressed the keys it said some sort of a mode was on but it was so accidental I pressed on another key and couldn't catch what exactly it said.

Hi sinine :)

Simple question, yet one that can solve 90% of the issues, did you try by restarting your computer yet? :)

All good :) When you face a weird issues like that, mostly triggered by keys, it's always good to restart your computer first to see if the issue gets solved that way or not :)

So I restarted my laptop. The yellowish/brightness thing went away for a while but it's back now.

Did you press the same keys as you did when it happened the first time or not?

Alright. Let's see what graphic card you are using. Click on the Windows Start Menu then right-click on Computer and select Properties. From there, click on Device Manager in the left-pane and in the Device Manager, click on the little arrow by Display Adapters to expand it. What items are listed under it?

sorry, I didn't reply sooner.

 

I still need help with it. When I turn my laptop on, I can see the "normal state" for a few seconds then this layer comes over.

There are applications which change the color of your display to match the time of day/night. One of these applications is called flux: https://justgetflux.com/

Look at the bottom-right of your screen where the clock is and see if you have any applications running there that might be responsible for changing your display in this manner.
