  1. How to reset to default colors?


    After recalibrating the color, I made a mistake and need to figure out how to reset the main color pallet to the default windows 10 colors? How can I do that? I'm not talking about a theme but instead the main colors before they were ever changed to begin with?

    :)

    default colors

    Hi Dimples,

    If you want to restore the default color settings on your PC, try these steps:

    • In the Search bar, type Settings, and then press
      Enter.
    • Click on Personalization, and then choose Colors.
    • Under Choose a color (Automatically pick an accent color from my background), set the toggle button to
      On.
    • Set the toggle button to Off for the following:
    • Show color on Start, taskbar, action center, and title bar
    • Make Start, taskbar, and action center transparent

    For additional help, here's how to restore the default theme settings in Windows 10:

    • Go to Settings> Personalization > Themes >
      Theme Settings.
    • Choose any option under Windows Default Themes.

    To Personalize your PC, see this link.

    Let us know how it goes.

    How to reset to default colors?

    Windows color profile won't "stick". It resets no matter how much I click "Make Default"

    My default color calibration for Win 10 is washed out. (Gamma setting I think.) I don't know why that is nor why it seems to be the unrelenting default color profile that windows resets to no matter what. I've tried to set different color profiles
    in the Color Management menu as the 'default profile,' but no matter what I set as the default, it will always reset it to the default washed out one upon closing the Color Management window.

    I also tried going into "Change System Defaults" under Advanced tab and making the new profile the system-wide default. It still goes back to the washed-out profile after closing the Color Management window.

    I'm irritated that windows ignores my settings and circumvents to this weird washed out default no matter what I try, is there any way to fix this?

    A previous fix to someone else from Microsoft did not help.

    Hi,

    To address your concern, we suggest installing the driver in compatibility mode. Here are the steps you can follow:

    • Download the latest display driver from the manufacturer's website and save it on your local disk.
    • Right-click on the setup file and select Properties.
    • Select Compatibility tab.
    • Under Compatibility mode, click the check box, then select the latest Windows version from the drop down list.
    • Once the driver is installed, check the functionality.

    Let us know how it goes."
