What's new in Windows 10 Build 21382

Bringing HDR support to color managed apps

If you are a user of some creating and artistic apps like Adobe Photoshop, Adobe Lightroom Classic, and CorelDraw that use International Color Consortium (ICC) display color profiles, the next version of Windows 10 is bringing HDR support for those.

 

With the latest Windows 10 Preview Build 21382, Microsoft added a new feature that lets those apps get accurate color and access the full gamut of your HDR display.

 

To turn ON this feature, first close your application. Then right-click on the app's icon and select "Properties". Navigate to the "Compatibility" tab and select "Use legacy display ICC color management" under the "Settings" panel.

 

 

Changes and Improvements in Windows 10 Build 21382

  • As some Insiders have noticed, Device Manager now has the ability to view drivers alongside of devices. The new driver focused “Devices by drivers”, “Drivers by type”, and “Drivers by devices” views enable users to view, install, and remove drivers, while the new “Add drivers” action enables users to add and install new drivers across all applicable devices. Managing drivers directly is more intuitive in many situations than working with them by way of the devices they are installed on, so we hope that developers and power users alike will enjoy the added flexibility. This change was added in Build 21343.
  • The Start menu will launch to help people get to the apps they want quickly after a clean install or upgrade is finished.
  • We’ve updated the new generic folder icon in File Explorer so it will now show an indication when the folder has contents.
  • We’ve updated the touch keyboard to use the Segoe UI Variable font and made some small adjustments to the icons.
