Installing ICC color profiles on Windows

On a Windows computer, color profiles in ICS and WCS format are stored at C:\Windows\system32\spool\drivers\color

Common profiles include:

  • ICC: sRGB
  • ICC: ProPhotoRGB (known as ROMM RGB)
  • Adobe: AdobeRGB

Standard sRGB is installed  on your device. To install other profiles, download them from their respective developer.
Install by either copying to the directory mentioned above or by right-clicking and select install profile.
