    Windows 10 .icm color profiles problem


    I have display calibrated by ColorMunki calibrator via .icm color profile. I have reinstalled system and I found a very serious problem. Icm profile works after system starts, but each time screen got back to the desktop from switched off display as in power plan or from full screen game the profile is replaced with default value and the only way to bring back .icm profile is manually in color management. It is strange, because it is on a completely new installed system with no new apps I had before on the same machine, display and whole calibration process and there was any problem wi

    After upgrading from Windows 8.1 to Windows 10 .ICM file For Monitor Not Working

    Hi, I just switched to Windows 10 and have exactly the same thing. I need colors to be accurate as I am a post processing photos. It was working perfect in Windows 8.1 but now Color Mgt seems to be doing nothing, no matter what .icm file I load.

    @Nvlddmkm: did you figure out how to use the .icm files?

    @Microsoft: Please HELP!

    Well... that's what I posted one hour ago. And now, after some searching on the net, I have found out how to reactivate my ICM files. Strange that Microsoft seems not to be able to properly answer this...

    You can read the full solution on this page: Using ICC Profiles in Windows | PCMonitors.info

    For me, it was the last step that did the trick. The previous steps I used to do in Windows 8.1 too. Apparantly you need to reset system defaults to use the ICM files provided. I guess because Win10 comes with its own calibration method??

    Anyway, for all strugling with this. See the last step in this link to fix this problem Windows 10 .icm color profiles problem :)

    Cannot change color profile for display no 2

    Hello,

    Thank you for reaching out to us. Windows 10 requires the correct color profile to make sure your device shows colors as accurately as possible. Only when the correct profile is installed on your computer for an image device will you experience color accuracy
    as intended by the company that designed that device. If colors don't render correctly on your display, chances are that's not due to a problem with the monitor. For us to help you with your concern, kindly answer the following questions:

    • What is the current build and version of your Windows 10? To check type in
      winver on the search bar and press Enter.
    • Have you gone to the manufacturer's website to download the most updated monitor driver?
      (Note: Kindly get the monitor driver, not the video driver.)

    Meanwhile, we suggest that you check
    LG's website
    and download the driver for your monitor. Kindly use the .icm file on the
    Change advanced color management settings for displays, scanners using search.

    We'll be waiting for your reply.

    Windows 10 .icm color profiles problem

    After upgrading from Windows 8.1 to Windows 10 .ICM file For Monitor Not Working

    Original Title: .ICM For Monitor Not Working

    When using Windows 8.1 I applied a .ICM file to color management to fixed the washed out colors of my ASUS VG248QE monitor; however, after making a switch to Windows 10, the .ICM does absolutely nothing. The colors don't change when I add or remove any
    .ICM file for that matter, as if the feature in color management simply does nothing.
