    Default Nvidia desktop color settings never stay what i set them to!

    I have my Nvidia control panel desktop color settings in the perfect spot to make normal browsing look colorful and perfect contrast...problem is whenever i play a game like Crysis or FarCry with it's own contrast and brightness meters in game...whenever i exit out of the game, my desktop color settings change to whatever Crysis or FarCry were using in game....and the brightness that those games use does not work as well for desktop colors.

    Is there a way to make Nvidia control panel keep the desktop color settings you set up manually even after you play a game? Or is this just a glitch that needs fixing?

    It has been a small problem for me too, with Nvidia colour settings. Each time I restart the computer (from fully off, not from sleep mode), the colour settings revert back to default settings.
    But all you need to do then, is go to where you adjust colour settings in the Nvidia software, and just tick the "other applications control colour settings", and then back to "use Nvidia settings". Your own settings should kick in then.

    Yea i know how to fix it, it's just annoying it doesn't switch back over automatically. Hopefully they fix this in a driver update.
