Q: After Windows 10 1607 - ICC Profiles Load But Not Applied

Windows 10 x64

Display Driver: Intel HD Graphics 4600 (Version - Latest available for this OEM Computer)

Before the 1607 update, ICC color management profiles for my wide gamut monitor would load and function properly.

After the 1607 update, the profiles can be loaded and associated, but there is no effect at all on screen colors.

[Note: Please don't suggest basic things like third-party apps, BIOS settings, etc. The machine is clean and I am doing everything by the book. Profiles in ICC v2 and V4 have been loaded with no effect.]

I figured it out! 

Head over to color management -> Advanced tab -> Change System Defaults -> Advanced -> Check 'use windows display calibration'

Hope that does the trick. Good luck.

Did this solve your problem?

Sorry this didn't help.

2. Type Control Panel and click it.

3. Click Display.

4. Click Change Display settings.

5. A new window opens, click Advanced display setting.
