Images opened in Elements too dark.

I'm using the trial version of elements 2024 and I'm finding that when I open an image in elements to do some editing the image is very dark. If I edit the image as seen on the screen to what looks OK it prints totally washed out or even if I save the edited version then view it on any other program it is also very washed out. The initial image is quite tonally balanced so if I print the original image it's quite good. I had this same problem with another program that I had and it was something in settings I could change but dont remember what. Any thoughts. I know its got nothing to do with my screen settings because if I load the same unedited version of the image from other programs, eg Windows, Gimp, Coral, Photopad it looks fine and not dark at all. Using a PC with windows 10.

The default settings of your monitor are most likely implicated. Suggest that you calibrate your monitor. There are several devices available for this very purpose - Check on Amazon.
