Windows 7: My shortcut to color profile picker has disappeared after installing..

My shortcut to color profile picker has disappeared after installing..

Hi. I was using Datacolor Sypder3 Elite to calibrate my screen. I forget how I got a shortcut to a list of calibrations onto my taskbar but it was convenient to change them in low light, high light, and so on. It was called "Profile picker."

Now that I installed Spyder5, that shortcut no longer points anywhere, probably because I uninstalled the Spyder3 software.

Does anyone know where color profiles are kept on a Windows 7 Home Premium system?

Windows Display Calibration is located in Color Management.


The ICC color profiles are located in Windows\system32\spool\drivers\color by default. Perhaps the Spyder software accessed from this folder.
