Matching colors between laptop display and external monitor

I'm looking at a chart in Excel (just as an example to use in this conversation) and the colors (a sort of sea blue as one example) aren't the same. It looks a little more cyan on the external monitor and more of deeper blue on the laptop display. Bottom line: I need the colors to be the same or at least a lot closer to matching.

I've gone into the onboard Intel display managment app and adjust the color sliders but this seems more messy than needed but maybe I am stuck with achieving matching colors this way.

Is there an easy way to adjust the colors so the external monitor colors match the colors on the laptop display?

Thanks!

Without buying calibration tools,  you'll need to do it manually.   I think your color sliders are the only way, plus the color setting on the monitor itself.   You could open 2 copies of a particular image to help you eye the match.
