    Color profile/filter enabled and can't remove


    Hello,

    I tried the customization forum, but had no luck, so I am trying here.

    Yesterday, I noticed there were some extra windows updates that involved my monitor (viewsonic xg2530) and processor (Ryzen 5 3600). I also may have updated the graphics card (GTX 1080).

    After my computer restarted, the colors on various UI menus on my Viewsonic changed; however, my extended monitor (BenQ) remains the same.

    The phenomena is quite weird, because when I play video games, or look at my background, there are no changes. It only happens when I open a UI for another program. Some noticeable programs are Google Chrome, and Steam. The colors have completely changed to some green/pink filter.

    Screenshots attached. If I take a screenshot, and upload it, the filter applies twice and changes back to normal color on my screen.


    • If I move a window from the Viewsonic to the BenQ, then it changes back to normal.
    • I have been able to force correct color in google chrome by changing "Force Color Profile" in chrome://flags/ from default to sRGB, but that doesn't fix it for other programs that have changed.
    • I have checked many monitor settings, and nothing has fixed the issue.
    • I have tried turning High Contrast on and off.
    • I have tried changing Nighttime mode.
    • I have tried uninstalling my monitor drivers.
    • I have checked various Nvidia settings



    I'll be here to answer any additional questions you might need to troubleshoot my issue.

    Thank you,

    :)
     

  2. Color Filters

    I have red-green colorblindness (green weak) and am wondering this:

    When I enable the corresponding color filter, am I seeing roughly the same colors non-colorblind people would see without the color filter enabled?

    Or do the filters only serve the purpose of helping me tell between red and green in the cases where I couldn't normally?

    Thanks in advance.

    Colors looking grey in Windows 10

    Hi,



    Thank you for writing to Microsoft Community Forums.



    I understand that the colors look grey on your computer. I would suggest you to check the color filters in Settings and see if that helps. Kindly, refer the steps mentioned below:



    1. Press Windows key + U, to open
      Ease of Access Settings
      .
    2. Now, select Color filters from the left pane.
    3. Under Use color filters, toggle the switch to
      off for Turn on color filters.
    4. Clear the check box for Allow the shortcut key to toggle filter on or off.


    Let us know how it goes.



    Regards,

    Nikhar Khare

    Color profile/filter enabled and can't remove

    HDR mode and color profiles

    Hello

    I have a calibrated ICC profile for normal sRGB mode. When i switch to HDR mode, it still using the calibrated profile, and giving weird colors and white balance.

    I have tried to add a Rec.2020 HDR profile to ICC-profile (Advance color) list in color management. But I can´t use it at standard colors in HDR mode. Nothing happens when i try to applied it.

    So to be clear:

    In normal mode I want to use calibrated icc profile for sRGB.

    And in HDR mode, using the standard REC.2020 icc profile.
