    How to use 3rd party color profile without a control panel?


    After the Creator update, the control panel is gone. So now I don't know how to add a specific colorprofile for my monitor anymore. It is a .icc file.
    In control panel I found it in "Screen resolution" -> "color management" -> select profile. But where is this setting in the new "Settings" area?

    Hello Burgurne, :)

    The Control Panel is still in Windows 10.

    You can open Run (Win+R), and open the colorcpl.exe file below to open Color Management.

    Ohh, okay. I thought it was gone for good, when it disappered from the right-click menu on the START-orb.

    Thank you for the lesson


    Btw: Step 2 in your guide don't work anymore. It is now "Settings" instead of "Control Panel". Is there a trick to get "Control-panel" back in this right-click menu?

    There sure is. The link in the blue note box under step 2 will show you how to add Control Panel back to the Win+X menu.
