  2. How to disable HDR toggle within being in HDR mode

    Hi,

    A short introduction to my problem, and what I've done so far:

    1) I've been trying to set up HDR with my PC running to my TV. Both are HDR compatible, I've checked my HDMI cable is HDR capable (successfully connect this to my PS4 Pro and triggers HDR).
    2) Initially, I connect the PC and activated HDR on the TV side (HDR is toggled per HDMI port on my TV). At first, the PC displayed on my TV as expected, but with the HDR toggle inside Windows 10 to off. Naturally, I toggled HDR to on...
    3) Next, my screen went black and the PC disconnected from the TV input. Now, the only way to achieve a picture again is to turn off HDR on the TV side.

    My question - firstly, am I missing something in this process with regards HDR working properly, and secondly, is there a way to untoggle the HDR in Windows without have HDR enabled? The option only becomes visible once HDR is enabled.

    Thanks, Jonny

    Windows 10 HDR toggle shortcut?!

    Hi all,


    I'm running Win 10 Pro 1909 and am looking for a much quicker way to toggle HDR on/off. I use HDR when watching content via media player classic but need to disable it afterwards each time as it renders the operating system far too bright and is straining on the eyes. This is annoyingly tedious as you need to navigate through settings, display, HD colour options etc. before finally getting to the toggle switch in question. Can a single click batch file/registry tweak perhaps be constructed in this case? Allowing you to enable/disable the setting in an instant?

    How to toggle HDR with a script on Windows 10

    This article details creating a script which does exactly what I've described but it apparently doesn't work with multiple display setups (which is what I'm running unfortunately!)

    Hoping a tenforums guru can assist!

    Can i add HDR toggle to taskbar or tray ?

    System Tray Missing

    You have to hide the ones you don't want always on top.

    This is done in the 'Show which icons appear on the taskbar' option in Settings > Taskbar.

    (toggle the main button to Off, and toggle individual icons you want on the Taskbar to On.

    The rest will go into the Tray )

    If you don't use all of the programs that are shown on the list all the time, you can further reduce the number

    that show in the Tray/box by disabling them in Task Manager > Startup to prevent them from launching in

    the background when you boot into Windows.

    - You can also toggle these to On so they show on the Taskbar vs the Tray after you launch them manually, if you wish.
