    When I use HDR (Windows HD Color settings)

    Whenever I screenshot the screen is really bright with bad contrast

    its like that with default screenshotting (win + shift + s) and also with programs like lightshot or gyazo.

  2. Windows 10 HDR problems in full screen.

    Hello moderator

    1. Its all the games I own that don't support HDR10. Basically when I full screen on a non-HDR game, the screen goes black for a few seconds and HDR gets disabled and all the colors looked washed out (Like its in SDR)

    I took 2 screenshots, One is in window mode, the other is in full screen

    Windowed mode (HDR on) : Imgur

    Full screen mode (HDR off) : Imgur

    2. Yes SDR looks washed out. I want to play my games in full screen and in HDR. Playing in windowed mode is a nightmare

    3. I know because the monitor goes black for a few seconds and all the colors look washed out (As shown in the screenshots)

    Sadly the fixes did not work Screen capture is lighter than screen actually is when using HDR color settings on windows :(

    I updated the GPU drivers via GeForce Experience app.

    My Monitor does support 4k HDR10

    I tried lower the resolution and the refresh rate but that did not work.

    Here is a video of my problem

    YouTube Link :

    Time Stamps :

    0:00 HDR mode is on everything looks fine (In the video, when it looks high contrast, that means HDR is on)

    0:35 I full screen the game. If you notice the high contrast is no longer there, the colors are washed out

    0:46 I disable full screen and HDR mode is back on

    *HDR looks high contrast, Ignore that, that's just the video itself.

    Im also using windows 10 64bit 1809
