How to Enable High Dynamic Range on Windows 11

In this article, I will show you how to easily enable high dynamic range on Windows 11. High Dynamic Range (HDR) on Windows 11 is like upgrading the visual quality of your computer’s screen.

It makes pictures, videos, and games look more vibrant and lifelike, almost like what you see in a high-quality movie theater.

Ensure that your display monitor and graphics card support HDR. Not all monitors and GPUs are HDR-compatible, so it’s essential to verify this first.

Ensure that your graphics card drivers are up to date. You can download the latest drivers from the manufacturer’s website (e.g., NVIDIA, AMD, or Intel).

Let me show you.

How to Enable High Dynamic Range on Windows 11

  • Click on the Windows logo in the bottom left corner to open the Start menu.
  • Click on the gear-shaped icon (Settings) to open the Settings app.
  • In the Settings app, select “System.”
  • On the left side, click “Display.”
  • Scroll down a bit until you find “HDR.” Turn on the switch that says “Play HDR games and apps.”
  • If you have an HDR-compatible screen, you might also see a slider that lets you adjust how bright the HDR content appears. You can adjust this to make things look just right.

Remember, not everything you do on your computer will look different with HDR. If you found this article helpful, kindly share it below with family and friends.
