Why are all my sketch lines yellow/brown by default?

Hi everyone,


I've somewhat new to SolidWorks (just finished a non-Mechanical engineering BS degree) and have been using SolidWorks 2015 for work on my Dell laptop with Intel 4600 HD graphics card for a year or so with no real issues. And now, every time I make a new sketch, as soon as I save and exit the sketch, it is shown as the yellow/brown dangling color. I am certain the sketch is sketched onto an existing sketch plane and has appropriate relations (so it should be black, and others should be blue but now they are by default yellow/brown).


This issue just started suddenly two days ago, so perhaps there is some hotkey that was accidentally turned on? I've even tried taking an older file which was working perfectly, deleting everything, and starting a new sketch on a plane and it still shows as yellow/brown.


My Sketch option settings are: Automatic Relations (ON); Automatic Solve (ON); Enable Snapping (ON); No Solve Move (OFF); Detach Segment on Drag (OFF); Override Dims on Drag/Move (OFF);


Any help would be greatly appreciated!
