Windows 11 users facing color rendering issues in certain application

Windows 11 was launched last year and ever since the launch, Microsoft has been trying to improve the user experience with regular updates. Recently, Microsoft has announced and confirmed that the operating system is facing some issues that affect the rendering of colors in some of the applications. Ever since it was released in the month of October last year, which is still in the rollout phase, the operating system has faced a lot of bugs, but Microsoft has been very swift in resolving them as well.

Although it is a free upgrade for all Windows 10 users, it is currently not available to all. Also, Windows 11 upgrade will not take place if any issues are spotted in the supporting hardware of the PC. As per the recent issue with color rendering, Microsoft claims that after installing the Windows 11 operating system, it might be possible that the image editing programs running on the system might not be able to render the colors properly, and that too on certain HDR displays.

Users might notice white colors being displayed as bright yellow in this issue. As per Microsoft, certain color-rendering Win32 APIs return unexpected information or errors under specific conditions due to which this issue is faced by users. However, the issue only affects certain color profiles on Windows 11, therefore color profiles can be changed for the system in the control panel. The company has not listed the combination of HDR display and applications that are facing this issue and is working on the patch that will resolve the issue. It is expected that the patch will be available by the end of this month.
