Library module Library view shows unedited photo's

I'm confused... my Library view shows the unedited photo's (Develop mode shows them correct).

Latest version loaded on Windows... Anyone with a clue?
OK. So I own a Spyder color calibration device. My previous monitor was calibrated and so is my current one.
I'm learning here but how does that factor in?
I have the impression that also in Develop my images look different now (too vibrant) than they did on my previous system. That shouldn't be possible unless something is wrong with how my profile is applied. I use DisplayCal. What seems odd is that in my Windows / Display screen the "Color Profile" says "32UHD144" (my monitor type). That is NOT the profile that was created after my calibration. I'm assuming however that DisplayCal (which is loaded in the tray) overrides that and does apply the calibrated profile.
Does any of this make sense? Again, I'm struggling to understand why I see what I see and how I can manage / understand / correct that.
Somebody more familiar with Windows than me can hopefully answer this.
On Windows, right click on home screen and select "Display settings". This should open the Display settings parameter window.
The field named "Color Profile" will show which profile is currently assigned to your display and you can change it if necessary.

If you do not see your profile in the list, verify that the profile (the .icc file) is present in the folder %Windir%\System32\spool\drivers\color

I see two ICM files in that folder. One is displayed in display settings and I can't select the other. Maybe because their names are similar...?
Display settings shows "32UHD144"
In the folder I see: "32UHD144.icm" but also "32UHD144 #1 2023-08-04 14-51 2.2 F-S XYZLUT+MTX.icm"
The names are indeed different (BTW, you can't have 2 files with the same name in a folder). But maybe the second name is invalid. Try to rename it by replacing the # and the + by a _
OK, working on it. I'm using DisplayCAL and I'm now checking it that calibration color profile is actually being loaded. Will update here later
It seems solved. Somehow I had a color profile setup in Windows while DisplayCal used another (calibrated) profile. I don't know if this makes sense but when I applies the DisplayCal profile in Windows, all my problems disappeared...
