    Windows 10 HDR settings apply to all screens, not just capable ones


    Hi all.
    Not sure if this is the right section for the question - considered graphics, but it's not exactly that. Anyway, here goes...

    I've purchased a new monitor (Dell S3220DGF) with HDR capability. I currently have 3 screens plugged: The new Dell monitor, my old MSI monitor (which does not have HDR) and a TCL TV that can do HDR, but it's bad enough that I do not want it on.

    My problem is that whenever I switch HDR on the Dell monitor in Windows settings and go full screen on a YouTube video, all screens switch to HDR mode. Including the two that have the settings turned off. The TV turns it's HDR on automatically and the MSI monitor goes black screen completely and needs to be switched off/on.

    So far it only happens on YouTube - don't have much to test on and don't really know where to even begin troubleshooting something random like this.

    Any ideas on what might be the cause, or what part of the system is even at fault. Is it YouTube settings? Is it Windows? Is it drivers? I'm very very lost and I would appreciate any input from the community.

    :)

    Unable to use HDR settings

    Hi,



    Thank you for writing to Microsoft Community Forums.



    The image that you have provided shows the 'Display capabilities' of the display that is currently connected. In order to get clarity and to assist you accordingly, please reply with the answers to the questions below.



    • Are you connecting the TV as a secondary monitor?
    • Was there any change or an update on your system before which you were able to change the options in the Windows HD Color setting section?


    Meanwhile, there are a few requirements that have to be in place for you to be able to notice a change in the Display capabilities. I would suggest you to refer the article on

    and check if it is helpful to you.

  3. 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 Windows 10 HDR settings apply to all screens, not just capable ones :(

    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
