Windows 11 gets new Auto HDR features in Xbox Game Bar

Microsoft has supplemented Windows 11’s Xbox Game Bar with additional Auto HDR functionality. The update adds a slider to adjust the intensity, and a button to quickly turn the feature on or off. While these additions are available immediately in the latest version of the Game Bar, Windows Insiders can try out a few other features.

The intensity slider allows users to choose to what extent Auto HDR is applied. According to the developer, this should especially come in handy in games where there is a lot of light or when it is very dark. The set value is saved per game, although only titles are supported that do not have a built-in HDR implementation.


In this example, the difference should be especially noticeable in the red sail seen on the left.

The menu is also completed with a check box to enable Auto HDR in compatible games. These settings can be adjusted in the Game Bar, which is called up via the combination of the Windows key and G.

In addition, there is good news for those who own a multi-video card setup: SLI or Crossfire users with a Windows Insiders build are now also able to activate Auto HDR. Beta testers who prefer not to see notifications will now be able to turn them off via the Windows 11 Notifications menu.
