Color Management in Windows 10

Hi all. I want to be able to allow a small group of users to change advanced color settings in Windows 10.
This is so that some people (non-admins) can go around and color calibrate the monitors in our office.

Color Management -> In the Advanced tab -> Change System Defaults

It asks for elevation. I used a GPO to add the user to the local Power Users group but still asks for elevation.

What is the "best practices" way of doing this? I am assuming I do not have to make the user local admin.

Thanks to all in advance.

I'm Greg, an installation specialist and 8 year Windows MVP, here to help you.

This is a consumer forums so you might get more specialized help for IT Pros at Technet: https://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/en-...

That said, could this calibration not be done on the monitor itself?

See here for How to apply Windows 10 Local Group Policy settings to specific users: https://www.windowscentral.com/how-apply-local-...

I hope this helps. Feel free to ask back any questions and let us know how it goes. I will keep working with you until it's resolved.

Thanks for your reply Greg. The monitor is calibrated with probe software that is installed on Windows.

Just to clarify, we are in a domain and I want to be able to control this as a GPO. The users that are allowed to do it are in an OU.

This is the OU:

OU=TD, OU=Users, OU=studio, DC=xxxx, DC=com

I want anyone in that TD OU to be able to get into that "Change system defaults..." area.

Yes, this I would ask at Technet as GPO by IT Pro's is entirely different than the consumer side: https://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/en-...
