Why desktop colors become bright, intense and saturated after you play a video
I was surprised the other day after I played a YouTube video noticing that desktop colors, some of them, had become bright, bold and saturated. In particular red, green and blue were so changed!
Checking the Control of my graphics card I didn’t find anything that fixed this problem. I was frustrated! The only solution that I found was to turn off my monitor and then turn it on again. Colors became normal, but I didn’t want to turn off my monitor each time I happened to view some video!
Then I thought to check the settings of the monitor itself. I use a Dell U2713H, which (like most monitors I guess) includes an option of “enhancing” video play! I disabled this and now colors remain natural in desktop applications and I still can enhance video performance using the player itself.
If you suffer from the same problem, don’t forget to check those monitor settings!
