With the furthest down the line updates to the Xbox Game Bar application, you can now change the force of the HDR impact, immediately empower or impair it, and that’s only the tip of the iceberg. A portion of the new highlights are accessible to everybody this moment, while others are simply accessible to Insiders.

On the off chance that you’re not mindful, Auto HDR is an element that permits games that don’t locally uphold HDR to profit from HDR-fit screens. It was presented with Windows 11, and it’s one of the enormous features for gaming on the new OS. Obviously, assuming that a game locally upholds HDR; it will not be impacted by this element.


The most imperative of the new highlights coming to Auto HDR is another power slider accessible in the Xbox Game Bar interface. With this slider, you can change how splendid or faint you believe the tones should be in your game.

Likewise in this part is another choice to incapacitate or empower Auto HDR by and large. Already, this choice was just accessible in the Windows11 Settings application itself, yet presently it’s somewhat more straightforward to access in a game, which is a much needed development.

Those two elements are accessible to all Windows 11 clients this moment, however assuming you’re a Windows Insider, you likewise have a couple more.

This ought to empower you to involve Auto HDR in additional games running in an arrangement like this.

That implies you can incapacitate warnings through and through or change them to your inclination so you will not be irritated by them any longer.

These are welcome increases, but on the other hand we’re actually looking out for another large HDR improvement Microsoft reported a couple of months prior. The organization is chipping away at a HDR Calibration application for Windows 11, like what’s accessible on Xbox, to make the experience function as well as could be expected on all various types of screens.
