Microsoft has updated its Windows 11 known issues and notifications page with a new problem that might annoy graphic artists and other professionals who have upgraded to the new operating system and are using certain displays.

As detailed at the top of the known issues section, one of the latest problems that Windows 11 users might face is an issue whereby image editing programs might not render colors correctly. The problem affects applications using Win32 APIs and is seemingly limited to certain HDR displays.

“After installing Windows 11, some image editing programs might not render colors correctly on certain HDR displays,” Microsoft wrote. “This is frequently observed with white colors, which could display in bright yellow or other colors.”

“This issue occurs when certain color-rendering Win32 APIs return unexpected information or errors under specific conditions. Not all color profile management programs are affected, and color profile options available in the Windows 11 Settings page, including Microsoft Color Control Panel, are expected to function correctly.”

Microsoft says that it is working on a solution, which should be available as early as late January. Previous Windows 11 issues that Microsoft had documented include a problem with the Serbian (Latin) language pack disappearing and compatibility issues with Intel Smart Sound Technology drivers.

    I’m almost positive this was going to be one of the bi-annual “major” updates, and they just slapped a new name on it. It even feels like it has all the prerequisite number of F’ups in it that a Win10 Major Update always has.
