enabling windows HDR (windows display HD setting) creates blurry browser captures

If I enable HDR it creates blurry browser captures.  For example with HDR enabled, and if I try to capture an image, region or window, as soon as you press capture, all browser windows get blurry (Brave and Chrome).  If you disable HDR, its no longer an issue..

I have experienced the same problem.  Having to disable HDR to take a screenshot is a very clunky workaround.  Disabling it permanently creates a whole other set of issues.  Would be nice if this could be resolved.

Same here. HDR creates a washed out, very bright snapshot that looks nothing like whats on the screen.

Same here. I have had my HDR monitor for over a year and I did not note the problem until recently.

Open Chrome, and type this into the address bar: chrome://flags/#force-color-profile
Change the setting to sRGB and it will resolve your issue.

However, other HDR applications will suffer the same issue.

Ok if you are using Chrome - I am using Edge Chrome and entering the address above does not provide that option. My experience is not blurry but way over exposed.
