How to Turn on Windows 11 HDR

High Dynamic Range (HDR) is a display technology that provides a wider range of colors and brightness than standard displays. This can result in more realistic and immersive images and videos.

To turn on HDR in Windows 11, follow these steps:

  1. Open the Start menu and type Settings.
  2. Click on Settings.
  3. In the Settings app, click on System.
  4. In the System settings, click on Display.
  5. Under Brightness & color, click on HDR.
  6. If your display supports HDR, you will see a Use HDR slider. Slide the slider to On to turn on HDR.
  7. If you see a Check for HDR capable devices message, click on Check. Windows will check for HDR-capable devices and turn on HDR if it finds any.

Once HDR is turned on, you may need to adjust the settings for your display to get the best results. You can do this by following these steps:

  1. Open the Start menu and type Display.
  2. Click on Display.
  3. In the Display settings, click on Advanced display settings.
  4. Under HDR, click on HDR settings.
  5. In the HDR settings dialog box, you can adjust the following settings:
    • Brightness
    • Contrast
    • Gamma
    • Color temperature
    • White point

Experiment with these settings to find the best combination for your display.

HDR can improve the visual quality of games, movies, and other media. If your display supports HDR, I encourage you to turn it on and experiment with the settings to get the best results.
