Microsoft announced on Friday (14) the launch of a new update for Windows 10, already available on its channels for developers in the Windows Inside program. Build 21382 promises to bring enhanced HDR support to applications that use color profiles that follow the parameters of the International Color Consortium (ICC).
As the company explains in its official blog, this means that creators using software such as Adobe Photoshop, Adobe Lightroom Classic and Corel Draw will experience immediate improvements using compatible monitors. Until then, the operating system limited work within the sRGB color game.
At first, users will need to activate the Properties of the applications, click on “Compatibility” and select the option “Use legacy display ICC color management”. The option should only appear for those who have previously defined the use of HDR mode provided by the operating system.
Improved driver management
The update also brings changes to the device manager, which now displays information about the drivers associated with each device. Microsoft hopes that this will make the management process more intuitive, for both developers and consumers as a whole.
Build 21382 also improved the reliability of the explorer.exe process, improved audio playback on ARM64 devices, and handled messages that incorrectly stated about the end of life of certain versions of the operating system. In addition, the system’s virtual keyboard now brings the new Segoe UI Variable font to the virtual keyboard. Check the full list of changes in the Microsoft blog.
