 Microsoft is bringing Auto HDR to Windows

Microsoft plans to add Auto HDR support to more than 1,000 PC games.

The software giant is now testing the new Auto HDR feature on Windows 10, which works just as it does across the latest Xbox Series S and Xbox Series X consoles.

Enabling Auto HDR adds HDR to a large number of DirectX 11 and DirectX 12 games, as long as you have a compatible HDR screen.

Hannah Fisher, Director of Microsoft's DirectX Program, says: While some gaming studios are advancing HDR computers by making the game an HDR game, Auto HDR for PC only takes DirectX 11 or DirectX 12 SDR games and expands the range of color and brightness to HDR smartly.

She added: It's a seamless platform feature that gives you an amazing new gaming experience that takes full advantage of the capabilities of your HDR screen.

The Auto HDR feature can be enabled in the latest test version of Windows 10 with version number 21337 released to Windows Insiders users today.

It should be enabled automatically, or you can activate it in the display part of the settings, the feature is still in preview at this time, and not all DirectX 11 or DirectX 12 games will support it yet.

Microsoft is also working to improve performance and fix some issues, and the company admits that Auto HDR requires some GPU computing power to implement.

Besides the Auto HDR feature, the latest Windows 10 beta also includes improvements to Virtual Desktops, a File Explorer layout update, and even some changes to built-in apps, like Notepad.

Windows 10 soon includes custom wallpapers for each virtual desktop, with the ability to easily rearrange desktops.

Microsoft also adds additional space between objects in File Explorer, and there is now a compact mode with the classic File Explorer mode, and the new display is more touch-optimized.

Notepad also has a new icon now and is being updated via the Microsoft Store.

The software giant is also updating the apps it bundles with Windows 10, to include Windows Terminal and Power Automate Desktop.
