How to Calibrate Your Monitor in Windows 10

If you want to get the most accurate colors and image on your monitor, you need to calibrate it. This process adjusts your monitor to display colors and images correctly. It’s important to do this if you’re a graphic designer, photographer, or anyone who relies on color accuracy for their work. Windows 10 has a built-in calibration tool that’s easy to use. Here’s how to do it.

Step 1: Open the Display Color Calibration Tool

To open the Display Color Calibration tool, go to Start > Settings > System > Display. Under “Advanced display settings,” click “Calibrate display color.”

Step 2: Calibrate Your Display

The first page of the Display Color Calibration tool is where you calibrate your display. It’s important to have your display set to its native resolution before beginning the calibration process. If you’re not sure what your native resolution is, you can find it by going to Start > Settings > System > Display. Under “Advanced display settings,” you’ll see your monitor’s resolution listed next to “Resolution.”

Once you’ve set your display to its native resolution, it’s time to begin the calibration process. The first thing you need to do is adjust the brightness of your display. To do this, look at the first slider under “Brightness.” The goal is to adjust the slider until the two images on the screen are indistinguishable. Once you’ve done that, click “Next.”

On the next page, you’ll need to adjust the contrast of your display. The goal is to adjust the slider until the two images on the screen are indistinguishable. Once you’ve done that, click “Next.”

The next page is where you’ll calibrate the color of your display. To do this, you’ll need to adjust the three color sliders until the two images on the screen are indistinguishable. Once you’ve done that, click “Next.”

The next page is where you’ll calibrate the gamma of your display. Gamma is the brightness of your display at various levels. To calibrate gamma, you’ll need to adjust the slider until the two images on the screen are indistinguishable. Once you’ve done that, click “Next.”

Adjust the Gamma Slider

The next page is where you’ll calibrate the white point of your display. The white point is the color temperature of your display. To calibrate the white point, you’ll need to adjust the slider until the two images on the screen are indistinguishable. Once you’ve done that, click “Next.”

Adjust the White Point Slider

The final page of the Display Color Calibration tool is where you can see a summary of the changes you’ve made. If you’re happy with the changes, click “Finish.”
