    Everything was fine until I upgraded to Win 10 and reinstall Lightroom.

    Everything exported now looks more vibrant and saturate, unlike the preview in Lightroom shows. What seems to be the problem?

    I don't know all the ins and outs but I suspect it will be something to do with the display properties.

    Go into preferences under the performance tab. Is that box checked that says lesser quality just for editing or something like that? Mine got checked by itself on the last update. Also check if your color pallet is RGB or Adobe.

    I believe that the issue may simply be that Microsoft is using different color management standards than Adobe. This is a fundamental problem with the sRGB standard both with applications and web browsers. The Microsoft application could simply be adding saturation to make photos look better. The standards for sRGB have been updated several times and many applications have not kept up.

    If this was from 2 different display devices then I would say it is a calibration issues. Here, I believe it is just some incompatibility with color management. In Lightroom, be sure that under the "Print to:" banner and under "Color Management" be sure to identify the Profile as sRGB and the Intent as Relative.

    @Kevin Fox Everything looks normal under the hood, I tried checking the box and uncheck it to see the difference. Nope, issue is not from there.

    @MikeB Yes, that may be the problem. But just double check, I exported the jpeg to my mobile devices and it all look exactly the same with MS Photos is showing, does this mean that the issue might come from LR?

    Unlikely that Lightroom is the problem. Lightroom actually uses the specified ICC Profiles and Tags for sRGB whereas many other browsers and applications do not. It is an inherent problem with the use of sRGB. To ensure that you are displaying it correctly requires that your display device be tested and calibrated.

    Lightroom, Photoshop, and other professional-oriented photo editors incorporate accurate color management as the backbone of their applications.

    A good introduction to color management:
    www.color-management-guide.com/introduction-color-management.html

    Some Adobe Technical Papers:

    For a deep dive into the subject, a chapter from "Adobe Photoshop CS6 for Photographers" (by Martin Evening) is online at www.photoshopforphotographers.com/pscs6/downloads/colormanage.pdf
