I can’t get white color. The whitest color in the settings still gives light gray. How to get pure white as snow color?

Yes, probably because of this.
The so-called “gamma” calibration settings of your monitor/operating system can also be a factor. Macintosh computers (and other Apple equipment) are ordinarily calibrated; PCs very well might not be. (Much as, when you look at a row of TVs in a department store, none of the pictures are the same. Walk into an Apple store and everything’s identical.)
