How to Turn On or Off Auto Enhance in Photos app in Windows 10

The Photos app included in Windows 10 is a universal app that allows you to enjoy, organize, edit, and share all your digital memories. It brings together photos and videos from all your devices, enhances them to make great photos even better, and organizes them into beautiful albums for you.

The Photos app automatically enhances your photos by default with improvements to lighting, color, contrast, red-eye, straightening, and more. This is all supposed to make your photos look better, but you may not agree and want to turn off this feature.
