The EIZO-developed ColorNavigator colour management software is free to download from the EIZO website and can be used to assist in the calibration of ColorEdge monitors. Once you download, install and open the software you'll be greeted with the main window where various options / features are available. To help you understand what each option / feature does, we've put together a quick guide.

3. 'Delete' button

Use this to remove any unwanted adjustment targets from the target list. (target must be clicked on so it is highlighted first)
