What's with all the Windows 11 articles? Trying to get those clicks?
It is a business, not a community service. If we paid subscription they wouldn't have to write this crap. Just check how Anandtech has at least 50% of their content be AT Deals.
 
But does the HDR option actually work when switching between HDR and no HDR applications? HDR on Win 10 was so buggy I left it switched off. If this has been resolved I might have found my first reason to try Win 11.

I use my PC on my TV, and it supports HDR10. When I enable HDR on Windows 11, the image looks completely washed out, just like in Windows 10. I wonder what I'm missing... I haven't tried in any game though.

Most likely douple HRD... That cause normally owerburn in the image. So if the program try to show something at HRD and if the OS try the same at the same time... that will happen.
The biggest problem is that there are no HRD monitors. Real HDR requires either oled display or multible zone backround lit led... Bot are very rare and very expensive. The problem is as it is shpwn in tle last Linus test... burn in. Linus did burn his oled monitor in few months whn it was used in computer environment... That is bad and also very expensive if you have to buy new monitor a couple on times in one year...

Thanks for the sanity check. Me too. :(

Does auto-HDR help you from having to readjust your settings depending on the content that you are viewing?

My standalone 4K HDR UHD player seems to be perfectly and automatically set for whatever media (4K, Blu-ray, 720 MPEG, etc.) I am viewing.

Windows 11 HDR seems to work best for any 4K Blu-ray and Blu-ray discs (e.g. uncompressed) I play on my desktop. Otherwise, I disable HDR.
