  1. Slideshow screensaver color is over saturated


    My Benq monitor is calibrated and my images color looks in great in Photoshop and also in Windows Photos. When I run a slide show the images are greatly over saturated and just awful for viewing. A few days ago the color in the slide show was perfectly okay. Does anyone have any idea of why this is only happening in the slide show. Windows 10 Ver. 20h2

    :)

    Screensaver slideshow does not display correctly whith dual monitors set to "extend desktop"

    Hi Tom,

    Since you've already checked the Screen Saver Settings, kindly answer the following question for clarification:

    • Have you tried turning off the second monitor while assigning the screensaver slideshow to the primary monitor?
    • Have you tried disabling and re-enabling the screensaver?

    We also suggest that you make the screensaver slideshow to appear first at the primary monitor properly before troubleshooting with the second monitor.

    Kindly get back to us for clarification.

    Is there a way to adjust color saturation? The colors are just too extreme.
