How to Enable HDR for Apps using ICC Profiles in Windows 10


The option to enable the HDR functionality is called Legacy Display ICC color management, and it is pretty easy to turn on:

  1. Close the app in which you want to enable HDR (if you have it running in your background)
  2. Right-click on the app’s icon.
  3. From the list of options, select Properties.
  4. You will then see a couple of tabs on top. Select the Compatibility tab.
  5. Under the ‘Settings’ section, check the Use legacy display ICC color management option.
  6. Apply these settings and exit the window.

You can follow a similar trajectory and unfollow the HDR setting if they don’t find it to be useful. Open up the app properties as has been done above and uncheck the Use legacy display box that was checked before.

It is possible for some of the users to not be able to see the option to enable HDR. If that is the case, it may be because this feature does not support the Windows build that your computer is running on. The HDR functionality was introduced in computers running on Build 21382 and later versions. It is, however, expected that this feature will be made generally available for all Windows PCs in the 21H2 update.
