the screen will match the colors that are seen in the output. Now currently, the device that has been selected is my monitor, my Hyundai 19-inch wide analog monitor. And notice down here that there's a profile loaded for that monitor. But if I click on this drop-down list, notice that there are other devices I could choose to use. For example, I have a Canon color printer right here. If I click on this, I have many other profiles that I could use that will kind of tweak the colors in the way they're displayed to match how they will lookwhen they're actually printed on the printer. For example, I could click this color profile right here and click close. So if you see an image on the screen and when you print it, the colors are slightly off and they don't quite match, you could go in and try to use a different color profile to try and correct the problem. Now another thing you can do to manage the performance of your video output is to adjust your visual effects. We'll go ahead and get out of this interface. And then within control panel, we click on system and security and we go to system and select advanced system settings. And then under performance, on the advanced tab, we want to click settings. Now here we see many different settings that govern the way the video output is formatted on the monitor. And some of these settings require more processing power on the part of the video board and the CPU than others do. In this interface, you can turn different video elements off or on in order to optimize performance. Now notice up here, by default, the selection is to let Windows decide what will work best on this computer, which option it should turn on and which options it should turn off. Notice that with, "let Windows choose what's best for my computer," most of the options are turned on, with the exception of these two in the middle. Now if I'm having trouble with the output of this system, and I'm not happy with the way things look, I can change things down here. One option is to reconfigure it for best appearance, in which case, notice that all the options are turned on. But again, that's going to require more processing power on the system and could slow things down. If I'm having those types of issues, I could come over hereand click this option, adjust for best performance. And notice when I do that, all of these options get turned off. That will require less processing poweron the part of the video board and the processor, and the video display should respond a little bitmore quickly. You can also click on custom and then manually come in and select which of these options you want to use and which you don't. I'm going to go ahead and just leave this option set to let Windows choose what's best for my computer. I'm going to click cancel so I don't make any changes that I don't want. Now there's one more setting that I want to look at, and it's actually not available on Windows 8 and Windows 10 systems. So we need to switch over to a Windows 7 system to see it. On older versions of Windows, such as this Windows 7 system, there is an option to manage hardware acceleration. Right-click on the desktop, and then click on screen

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
