Weird ‘Orange Screenshot Bug’ Is Annoying Windows 10 Users


Windows Updates are supposedly designed to add new features and reduce problems on our machines. But those who installed Windows 10 cumulative update KB4512941 are not having a good time at all.

Just recently we told you about the high CPU usage and broken Windows Search because of KB4512941. Now, the said Windows Update is leaving users with an orange/reddish tint when they try to take a screenshot on their PC. Some affected Windows 10 users were quick to reach out for support via its QnA portal (via MSPowerUser)

My screen turns red when I capture a screenshot. How can I turn it off? I haven’t changed any settings; yesterday it was fine. I tried using different snipping tools, and the regular PrtSc button. All red,” a user wrote on Microsoft answers.

The weird bug doesn’t seem limited to the screenshot option. Another user reported that the reddish tint appears a few moments after he entered login credentials and landed on the Desktop.

How to fix Windows 10 orange screenshot error?

Vijay Verma, who’s a volunteer moderator, has suggested that the orange tint could be because of some issue with the graphics driver and so users should consider updating the same.

  1. Go to Device Manage > Expand ‘Display Adapters’
  2. Right-click on your GPU
  3. Click Update Driver.
  4. Depending on your preference, you can choose between “Search automatically” or “Browser my computer” options.
  5. Follow the instructions and restart your device.

If you find the process tedious then you can visit your PC maker’s website to see if there’s any update available for the graphics driver.
