Since Windows 11 was released, there have been continuous problems. Now, Microsoft has confirmed a Win11 bug. Microsoft confirmed that after upgrading to Win11, you may encounter color rendering problems when using applications such as image editors. In addition, there are other bugs in the latest version of Windows 11, which Microsoft is investigating.
According to the report, there is a bug in Win11 that prevents some image editor programs from rendering colors correctly on the monitor (mainly related to HDR). When users try to edit a picture with a pure white or light background, they will observe the wrong color, and the picture may be displayed in bright yellow or other colors.
Microsoft confirmed that this bug occurs when the Win32 API returns abnormal information or errors under certain conditions. This is a problem of Win11 itself. In most cases, updating the application will not improve it. According to Microsoft, the Win11 bug does not affect all applications related to color management.
Microsoft predicts that in the stable version of Win11, the color management files configured in the settings and control panel will work according to presets.
As expected, in the Win11 version launched in late January, issues related to HDR or image editors will be resolved. If you are a member of the Insider program, there is a chance to get the fix in the newer preview version. According to the feedback center report, when running the preview version, the display rendering error seems to have indeed been fixed.
In addition to the problem of abnormal colors in reality, Win11 also has other bugs. In the Windows 11 KB5008215 released on December 15th, some users claimed that they could not apply the cumulative update because the patch could not be installed, resulting in a mysterious error message.
In addition, some users have encountered performance issues with certain storage devices such as SSDs. Currently, Win11 has a bug that may reduce the performance of the storage drive. This usually occurs when trying to move files between the system partition and other partitions. This error only affects the partition where Windows 11 is installed.It is not yet clear that these problems will be completely fixed if appropriate. Hope that Win11 can fix more bugs in the optional update in January.
