Windows Color System
Windows 7 Service Details
Gamma/Color mapping for Windows. Managed through the control panel. Handy if you have 2 screens of different models, and the color doesn?t match between them. Still a pain to get them to match though, as it?s a much more involved process than the wizard allows for.
The WcsPlugInService service hosts third-party Windows Color System color device model and gamut map model plug-in modules. These plug-in modules are vendor-specific extensions to the Windows Color System baseline color device and gamut map models.
Consequences of Stopping:
It will be up to your monitor to do color correction. Any configurations you have set up in the Windows Color tool will not be applied. Stopping or disabling the WcsPlugInService service will disable this extensibility feature, and the Windows Color System will use its baseline model processing rather than the vendor's desired processing. This might result in inaccurate color rendering.
All services listed in 'Required For' will be unable to function
