Microsoft’s Windows 11 is a beautiful operating system on almost all PCs. However, if you have a monitor that can operate in high dynamic range (HDR) mode, you will get a brighter and more vivid experience-whether you are hanging out on the desktop, watching your favorite HDR movies, or immersed in Your favorite HDR game. Therefore, you need to make sure it is enabled.

This seemed to be the case when I first installed Windows 11 on my desktop using my LG C1 OLED TV. But when I restarted for the first time, I found that HDR was disabled for some reason, which made the image of Windows 11 darker and flatter.
So, whether you want to enable HDR on Windows 11 for the first time, or enable it and then it disappears, we will show you how to turn on HDR in the latest Microsoft operating system below (or make sure it is enabled). Don’t Worry, this is a simple process that only requires a few steps.
How to enable HDR in Windows 11
As with Windows, there are several ways to enable HDR in Windows 11, through the desktop or the start menu.
1. Right-click on the desktop and click Display Settings. Avoid using the new “Start” menu for the time being. Clicking “Display Settings” in the desktop right-click menu will open a new window that has been redesigned to meet most of your monitor adjustment needs.
2. Flip the switch marked to use HDR. Windows 11 displays an item on the settings window, and you should see an item for using HDR. To the right of the label is a toggle switch. If your monitor supports HDR, you will be able to switch it and bathe in extra colors, contrast, and brightness.
If you want to use the HDR settings of Windows 11, instead of just turning on HDR, there is a more advanced HDR menu.You can pass Click the Windows logo (or press the Windows key) to open the Start menu, type HDR and press Enter.
In this HDR settings window, you can enable or disable HDR, and change the HDR settings on all available HDR-supported displays. You can also choose the type of content you want to play in HDR, turn on automatic HDR (trying to make SDR games look more like HDR), and more.
