When it comes to printing a picture from a Windows 10 PC, the color settings matter a lot. Those who are into editing photos, change their PCs color settings to make sure the printout looks like the actual colors.
Here is another fact – those settings might not be appropriate for PC display, and it is pretty easy to notice that there is something off about the display. Some of you might even notice the weird tint which is not easy to get rid of. It is possible that you may only notice this when you look at some other PC and then wonder what’s wrong. In this guide, we will show you how you can restore the display color settings to default in Windows 11/10.
