    Windows color management help


    I have a Dell UP2516D which is a wide gamut display, so Windows apparently doesn't recognize this and saturates every color in photo viewer, movies viewer and windows native apps. Until now I've been able to live with this because Adobe apps and Chrome managed their own color, so it wasn't saturated and was OK.


    However I was trying to calibrate the windows color, and I honestly do not know at what moment i made windows saturate even the apps that used to manage color themselves, so now even Google Chrome and the Adobe apps are saturated, and that is critical for me.


    I do not own a monitor color calibrator (i'm supposed to get the i1 from x-rite which is very expensive) and i have never used one. I know I have to get one eventually and that would fix the entire windows color, but until then, I need at least for the non native windows apps to manage their own color and capp the color gamut to sRGB like they used to. Is there anyway to do that?


    Thanks

    :)

    Color Management Windows 10

    Hi Kendall,

    For us to isolate your concern with Color Management, we would like to know the following:

    • Are you using an administrator access?
    • Have you tried creating a new user profile to replicate the issue?
    • To make sure that we have not missed on anything, what troubleshooting steps have you done so far?
    • Send us a screenshot of the Advanced tab in Color Management.

    For more information, the best way to get the color profile you need is to visit your monitor manufacturer's support website and download the latest driver for the device.

    We look forward to your response.

    Hi,

    Since troubleshooting steps were provided, what I can suggest is for you to try to configure the settings on your monitor's color management. Kindly follow the steps provided below:

    • Open Color Management by clicking the Start button, and then clicking Control Panel. In the search box, type color management, and then click Color
      Management
      .
    • Click the Advanced tab, and click Change system defaults.
    • Click the Advanced tab in the Color Management - System Defaults dialog box, and do one of the following:

      - To prevent Windows from loading display calibrations, clear the Use Windows display calibration check box.
    • Click Close in the Color Management - System Defaults dialog box.
    • Click Close in the Color Management dialog box.
    You can also refer to this link for screen flickering troubleshooting.

    Let us know how it goes.

    Getting Color Management onto the taskbar and...?


    Hey Edwin, thanks, but let me make sure I got this all right. It seems that only Color Management can be pinned to the task bar...Right? Whereas, the website can only be pinned to the Jump List, and not to the taskbar...Right? If so, good enough as this will still reduce the number of steps needed to change my monitor's color settings.
