  • To get accurate colour It greatly helps to calibrate/profile the display with a calibrator (e.g. i1 display pro, colormunki display, Spyder etc); you didn't say if you do that. Brightness of the ...
  • Agreed.  The term can cover such a wide range of issues. Or and optician.  In some cases, something a simple as a change of lens in spectacles (if you wear them) can make an enormous difference.  ...
  • Strange, I haven't had that problem.  I have three PCs with calibrated/profiled displays.  Two use i1 profiler (xrite) and one uses Colornavigator (Eizo) and the calibrations for all three ...
  • I found that an earlier version of W7 games no longer worked, but a build downloaded here works for me with 1803.
  • Brilliant!  Thanks for that.  I think that may have been a long-standing issue (FDResPub not starting automatically) but although I'd looked for solutions before I'd not found that.
  • Remember also that if it's Windows 10 Home (as opposed to Pro) then there's little choice about updates without a bit of hacking, so it will always try at some stage to install the latest build. I ...
  • Do you mean 1709 and 1703?  1703 was the build launched in Spring 2017 and 1709 was the build launched in (as we say this side of the Atlantic) Autumn 2017.  We're now on 1803, launched a week or ...
  • Agreed, but which is the default, other than the one set in the Devices tab, if any? You have explained that there is a list of profiles. You haven't explained how any of those becomes the default ...
  • That "All profiles" list is just a list of profiles (in C:\Windows\System32\spool\drivers\color).  The default profile (if any) is the one set in the "Devices" tab as you describe below. As I say, ...
  • In Windows if there isn't a profile assigned then there isn't a default profile.  Some (but not all) applications assume a default, but Windows doesn't assign a default profile. That's not my ...
  • It requires two profiles: the image profile as you say, but also a monitor profile.  Edge and IE don't use the monitor profile (rendering all images to sRGB), which means ALL images are displayed ...
  • Edge, like Internet Explorer, still isn't colour managed properly.  It uses any embedded profile in the image, but ignores the monitor profile. This means that Edge and IE are 100% guaranteed to ...
  • As you mention "dotnet hack for Windows 2000", I assume you're "someone that likes fiddling with things". I use few of the new-style apps, and the computer landscape on my PCs is almost identical ...
  • HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\DeviceGuard\Scenarios\HypervisorEnforcedCodeIntegrity and create a DWORD inside called Enabled.  Set that to 0 to disable Core Isolation. See htt ...
  • The only issue I've found is one I mentioned in another thread where the security questions you get on first login after update were incorrectly rendered on two (very dissimilar) machines so as to ...
  • Thanks for the warning. I can't find any reference to this yet in the VirtualBox forum, but I assume the registry entry you mean to turn it off is: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Contr ...
  • I must lead a charmed life. I did not lose the Dehaze tool when updating to 7.3.1, and I haven't lost it before with updates. I haven't lost filters or plug-ins - now or before. I'm intrigued that ...
  • The previous installation gets deleted anyway after 10 days.  I'm not critically short of space, so I'll leave it in case I need to go back to the previous version in the next 10 days.
  • I've now updated three machines.  All are working fine, but two issues to be aware of, perhaps: (1) On two machines, on first boot after the update, the first login led to a screen that was poorly ...
  • I assume either you've suppressed Windows updates (e.g. by disabling wuauserv) or you don't use Win 10 Home?
