Are you sick and tired of seeing that horrible yellow outline in Baldur’s Gate 3? You can stop worrying now, I got you.

In order to remove this yellow outline from your characters in Baldur’s Gate 3, you must toggle highlight characters. Actually, that is a visual helper. But ruins the game if it’s on all the time. Here is how to unhighlight characters in Baldur’s Gate 3:

So, to close highlight characters and remove the yellow outline, all you have to do is press button on your keyboard. For mac users, this button would be the ~ on the top right corner.  Also you can change this hotkey on the key bindings. Simply press ESC, go to options and key bindings. There, you will see the highlight character hotkey. Just remove or change it to a key button of your liking.


Basically yellow outline in Baldur’s Gate 3 means these are somehow neutral characters. Characters with green outline means friendly. Finally, red outlined characters are obviously the enemies.

Highlight characters is a Baldur’s Gate 3 helper. Included in the game in case you lose your characters in dark places. Or perhaps for the crowded instanced where you have to spot your characters. As I have said before, this visual filter can be closed by pressing or ~ buttons.

I personally never use highlight characters at all in Baldur’s Gate 3. However, some people might find this tool useful. In any case, I believe I helped you a lot with this simple guide.
