XG49V - GameVisual modes greyed out on desktop

Level 7
I just got my new ASUS ROG STRIX XG49VQ 49" monitor, and the menu controls (and the ASUS DisplayWidget) have the "Game Visual" menu option greyed out on the Windows Desktop. However, when I load into a game, I am able to change my settings. I was able to change visual and color settings on the Desktop earlier today, however. What happened here, and how do I get GameVisual color settings back? The DisplayWidget app is useless without that customization.

Thanks for your help!

Just thought I'd answer the question - with HDR enabled, the GameVisual modes are irrelevant. So disabling HDR allows you to select color modes once more.

3 Years later, useful to know.. think they could write that up in the software "please disable HDR in order to change modes" or something....

Useful note. Thanks
