No Default Color Profile Listed in Color Management?

Hello everyone.

I want to color calibrate my new Dell XPS 15z laptop, but before I do I'd like to back up the existing color profile in case I prefer it to the calibrated one ...

The only problem is, when I open Color Management, NO default color profile is listed, so I don't know what to go back to. I know there HAS to be a default color profile somewhere ... How do I find it?

Thanks for any and all help you can offer!

You don't need to backup the default color profile...so don't worry about that.
Anyways its probably using sRGB IEC61966-2.1 you can see it in the advance tab.

Hey thanks for responding!

So I don't need to back up the default profile because if I delete my new profile windows will just auto default back to the old one? Even if I don't know what or where it is?

Its built into the Windows. It should switch back when you delete the custom profile.
