    Windows color calibration tool and resetting calibration

    I went and ran the built in color calibration tool in Windows 10 to adjust gamma, brightness, contrast etc but I want to restore this back to what it was before I ran this calibration tool. How do I do that? There does not seem to be an obvious "Restore Default" button anywhere.

    Do I simply delete / remove the Profile listed in the box under Start-Settings-Colour Management and maybe untick the box "Use my settings for this device"?

    During color calibration you may have made changes to brightness and contrast outside windows using your monitor display menu.

    Open your monitor menu from the controls on your monitor and find default or Auto settings there and reset defaults from there.

    Then you can delete your profile, and proceed to recalibrate if necessary.

    I did my calibration using NVIDIA Control Panel under Adjust image and Video settings:

    Under the Advanced tab, don't forget to set color range to full(0-255)

    Go here AVS HD 709 - Blu-ray & MP4 Calibration - AVS Forum | Home Theater Discussions And Reviews and download the MP4 version and here is the PDF manual:

    The only thing I did on my monitor was set a daytime & nighttime custom backlight setting and calibrated for each.
