Google's Chrome web browser displays a search field on the New Tab Page of the web browser by default. Users of the web browser may have noticed three things: first, that the search field is not displayed if most search engines are selected, second, that customization options are only provided if Google is selected as the search provider, and third, that the search field is fake.
Note: If you select Bing Search, you may notice that the search field is not fake. It works just like the search box on the Bing homepage.

I bought a new computer monitor recently for a Windows 10 device; my first 4K monitor, LG 27UD59-W, with a resolution of 3840x2160. Setup worked fine and the monitor was detected properly right away. When I checked the graphics settings, I noticed that Windows 10 continued to use the color profile of the old computer monitor, a full HD HP display.
Since I'm probably not the only one who runs into this, I thought it would be nice to write down the steps that I undertook to install the right color profile for the new monitor on the Windows 10 machine.
