  1. I updated the Driver at the request of AMD (6900XT) and HDR option vanished. I do have HDR on the (Tv) Screen in Programs (I can tell the [BIG] difference), but just not via my PC. Nothing else changed. So either Microsnot are employing woke-chimps to help code or AMD are (or they both are). Try not to employ incompetent people.

  2. I experienced the exact same thing, had HDR fully enabled, updated AMD drivers (i usually do this once a month as updates come out) now HDR in windows settings is completely gone and i can’t even try to use it in any game now.
