PS CC vs Preview program color differences

Recommended Posts

Hello, I'm hoping someone can help me with this issue. Perhaps it is a calibration issue but I'm not a hundred percent sure, that is why I'm asking. 

On the left,the yellow circle, is my Photoshop program with a photo. The colors are not as vibrant as they are in my other program (with purple square). 
I printed a photo to compare the two. The purple Square program(called Windows photo) is right on with the print. But my Photoshop doesn't match (colors are less brilliant). 
Any troubleshooting ideas?

I have a PC laptop running Windows 10xps 15  and Photoshop CC . It is less than 1 month old, and has 32GB of RAM.

Yes, it's a calibration issue.

Windows Photo is not a colour-managed program.  If it matches your prints, that is nothing more than STAGGERINGLY good luck.  And of course it's pointless, because you need the program that you edit your photos in to be the one that matches your prints.
