  1. What happened to the "Detect fullscreen video" display setting?


    I use a TV as a monitor on a windows 10 machine. For a while i had a problem where when I would view videos, the color and resolution of the screen would change. After much searching i managed to find out about an obscure setting in display settings named something like "Detect fullscreen video" i may be remembering the name slightly wrong and it has options for automatic or to force it to one color option or another. I fixed my issue by telling it to force to my regular desktop color and that was all fine.


    At some point one of the windows updates seems to have removed or moved this feature and now i can't find it, and I'm back to having the same issue where it will change my output and color settings when opening videos or some apps microsoft store, for instance, will change my color and output resolution as long as it is open even if it is not focused.


    Does this option still exist? Is there a registry setting i can tweak if it is not in a settings page?

    :)

  2. Laptop display does not detect itself

    Hi,

    In regards to your concern, since the second screen can't detect the display settings of your other laptop, we suggest that you perform the steps below and see if it helps:

    • Go to Settings.
    • Click on System.
    • Under System, choose Display.
    • Under Multiple displays, click on Duplicate these displays and apply.
    Let us know the details so we could further help.

    What happened to the "Detect fullscreen video" display setting?

    Laptop display does not detect itself

    Hi,

    I only have 1 computer (the laptop) and 1 external monitor. The laptop cannot detect its own screen.

    So when I follow your steps, this is what happens:

    • Go to Settings. (Done)
    • Click on System. (Done)
    • Under System, choose Display. (Done)
    • Under Multiple displays, click on Duplicate these displays and apply. (Done)
    • But then I undock my laptop and redock. Re-login, etc.
    • Only the external display turns on. The laptop does not turn on its own display. In order to get the laptop display to wake up, I need to follow steps 1-4 again. The settign "Duplicate these displays" does not seem to be retained.
