My work laptop has just been upgraded to Win10 Enterprise and I'm struggling to stop the screen from looking too bright/washed out

I've toyed with the monitor Brightness/Contrast which has helped a little, but can anyone advise of Win10 settings to improve the situation further?

Excel spreadsheets are so washed out at the moment I can't see individual cells!

I don't have the same issue with my home PC, so it could be corporate theme/settings driving this?

Thanks

It shouldn't really happen with a built in display but make sure Windows (if you have control over the settings) is outputting full range RGB instead of limited range and/or other colour formats.

Apparently the creator update breaks colour profiles for some users as well - might be worth googling "Windows 10 creators update colour management" for potential fixes.
