    How to Calibrate a Monitor in Windows 10

    information   Information
    Windows comes with the Display Color Calibration wizard tool.

    You can improve the color on your display by using Display Color Calibration to make sure that colors appear accurately on your screen.

    This tutorial will show you how to calibrate a monitor using the Display Color Calibration wizard tool in Windows 10.

    You must be signed in as an administrator to use the Display Color Calibration wizard.



    Here's How:

    1. Press the Win+R keys to open Run, type dccw into Run, and click/tap on OK to open the Display Color Calibration wizard.

    2. If you have more than one display, move the Display Color Calibration window onto the display you want to calibrate, and click/tap on Next. (see screenshot below)
    Note   Note
    If you only have one display, then you would just need to click/tap on Next.

    3. If your display has a menu option, then return your display to the factory default color settings before you click/tap on Next. If your display (ex: on laptop) doesn't have a menu option, then you can just click/tap on Next. (see screenshot below)

    I used to use this, long ago, but now I prefer to use AVS HD 709 - Version 2c MP4 download: AVS HD 709 - Blu-ray & MP4 Calibration - AVS Forum | Home Theater Discussions And Reviews

    Link to PDF Manual on how to use AVS HD 709: http://w6rz.net/avshd709/Patterns-Manual.pdf

    Better is if you can get your hands on a colorimeter(my friend that has one moved away some time ago, but I got awesome results on my LG HDTV with it, using the Blu Ray version).

    information   Information
    Things to remember when calibrating a monitor or HDTV used as a montior:
    1. Turn off all dynamic picture settings. Things such as “Dynamic Contrast”, for example, should be disabled. Also, any picture tweaks such as “Black Tone,” “Skin Tone,” “Edge Enhancement,” noise filters, energy saving features, etc. should be disabled
    2. Set your color gamut to BT709(if possible)
    3. Set your color temperature to 6700K or D65. If your display has a “Color Temperature” or “Color Tone” setting, it is generally best to set this to a “Warm” setting which will hopefully get the display reasonably close to D65.
    4. Let your monitor warm up for a half hour or longer first.
    5. You should be calibrating the display in your typical viewing environment. Daylight/Night, or in the cellar at your gaming battle station, with your lights off, where ever.
    6. Lastly check your calibration after a week the first time, then recheck every 6 months to a year, because the settings will "drift" no matter how good a screen you have.
