Control Ring Setting Help R6?

I feel stupid asking this but I am new to the Canon mirrorless line and the control ring is also new to me. I have an R6. I did set the control ring to control kelvin WB but when I lightly press the shutter and turn the ring, nothing changes on the screen - no menu comes up nor does the WB change. What am I missing/what should I see? Thanks, Bill

Bring up white balance and set it to " K " (color temperature) first.

Hi, thanks, that made sense, however still nothing.  What should I see happen?  I am touching the shutter release button while turning, right?  It just acts as normal, focuses and that's it.  I must be missing something.  Bill

It works for me. In WB the K is left of AWB. Once WB is set to K half press the shutter and turn the control ring. The button on the lense need to be on control and not focus.

That was it, thank you so much.  Bill
