I just discovered another pain with Windows 10 and wide gamut monotor. I was so happy few days after I installed and calibrated my EIZO Coloredge monitor untill I discovered.... Bad iplementation of Color management in Windows. If you do not have color managed application to review your exported jpegs, you will end up with totally wrong colors.

Windows just offer your custom ICC profile that you get after calibration to be used by applications which also need to be color managed itself.

And standard windows applications are NOT color managed!!!

That is how windows work. Thumbnails that you see in windows explorer are way to saturated. Also I used Microsoft Photo Software to review my jpegs after export - that app is NOT color managed!!! I discovered it after a few days, it is really ridiculous!!!

What kind of software designer can make a Photo application that is not color managed? And that is accepted by Windows?

Luckily there is a workaround, old Microsoft photo viewer application is color managed, and it is possible to use it in windows 10 with some tweaks. Still thumbnails are a pain, if you do not use lightroom for that, which is of course color managed (and I don't want to use it for jpegs).
