POSTS / Unexpected High Contrast on non-HDR screen in Microsoft Edge while using Dual Screen

Published: 2024-03-04

I’ve been suffer a problem for a while: when I connect another screen to the laptop, sometimes the Edge window on the laptop screen will display like this:

I don’t know how to describe that problem before until I went into this post from reddit: r/MicrosoftEdge: Dual screen HDR problem after update. The edge window on the origin screen gets a high contrast.

Then I went to edge://flags as that post instructs and set Force color profile to scRGB linear (HDR where available).

edge settings: force color profile
