How to Calibrate Display for HDR Video in Windows 10

You will be able to play streaming high dynamic range (HDR) video when your Windows 10 device has a display that is optimized for HDR video and you have Stream HDR Video turned on in Video playback settings.

Starting with Windows 10 build 17063, the Video playback section in the Apps page of Settings includes a new tool that lets you calibrate your display for HDR video.

This allows you to change the way HDR video appears on your device, allowing you to find your preferred balance between details in dark scenes and details in bright scenes.

This tutorial will show you how to calibrate your display for HDR video in Windows 10.

Here's How:

1. Open Settings, and click/tap on the Apps icon.

2. Click/tap on Video playback on the left side, and click/tap on the Change calibration settings for HDR video on my built-in display link on the right side. (see screenshot below)
