  1. Gamma control is lost in games with latest Windows 10 update


    My system updated the other night, and now games like Halo cannot control the brightness (gamma). Windows version at the command prompt says "Microsoft Windows [Version 10.0.18362.175]". The video card is AMD Radeon VII with latest drivers (19.6.1). Is there a way to restore control over screen brightness for applications? Some games are just too dark in their default settings.

    :)

  2. Windows 10 in-game brightness/gamma issue

    I just did a fresh install of Windows 10 x64 Pro (I previously ran Windows 7 x64). Everything is great until I launch a game. I play Amnesia the Dark Descent which is a very dark game so I know what true black looks like, and for me in Windows 10 the black
    isnt black, its grey, which seems to be cause by gamma or brightness being too high. I ran the Windows calibration tool but it doesnt help as on the desktop brightness and gamma are normal, its only in game where it is wrong.

    I have tried updating drivers, rolling them back, messing with brightness and gamma in the nVidia control panel but nothing is solving this problem and I cant seem to find anyone else who has experienced it. I have a nVidia GTX 670 with latest drivers.

  3. Gamma settings resetting to factory Default when alt tabbing during game play sessions.

    Hi David,

    Thank you for posting your query in Microsoft Community. We are glad that you choose Windows 10.

    I can understand that your computer gamma setting is keep on resetting while you run a game. I appreciate that you have already tried a few troubleshooting steps. Please let me help you resolve your issue.

    Gamma is a critical setting that affects luminance and how reds, greens, and blues interact with each other.

    In order to understand the issue in a better manner, please share the following details.

    • What is the make and model of your computer?
    • Which game is causing the issue?
    • Have you tried with a different game?
    • Can you find any notification window while automatically resetting to factory settings?

    I suggest you to check the game version and see if it is compatible with Windows 10.
    Click on the below link to check compatibility.

    Game controller ID settings

    Hi Joe,

    Thank you for the update. I understand your concern.

    I would suggest you to look for the Devices settings in Control Panel and check if the game controllers are listed. If so, refer to the following steps to alter the settings and check if these are helpful in resolving your issue.

    a. Right click on one of your game controllers and click Game Controller Settings. Note where in the list it is. If it is not at the top proceed to the next step.

    b. Right click and remove all your other controllers (not the 360/gamepad) and let them reinstall automatically.

    c. Once complete right click and check the list again and see if the 360 controller/gamepad is at the top. If so, give the game another try and see if it detects your controller.

    If the issue still persists, restart your console and then try to reconnect your controller.

    Hope this information is helpful. Please post back your results for further assistance.
