Apple Tells How To Fix “Windows 10 Distorted Screen” On Your MacBook


It’s a rare sight when Apple, the maker of Mac computers, does something helpful for its Windows fans. While we don’t have the privilege to enjoy the comfort of Final Cut Pro X (seriously Microsoft, it’s high time now), we can still install apps like iTunes and iCloud on Windows.

In its latest attempt, Apple has come forward to fix a problem that has been annoying users running Windows 10 (on a MacBook). Due to a bizarre bug, the right side of the screen appears distorted while using Windows 10. For the uninitiated, Boot Camp is a macOS tool that lets users dual boot Windows 10 on Mac computers.

The company has published a new support document detailing what can be done to tackle the problem. As per the document, the distorted display problem with Windows 10 is present in Mac computers running AMD graphics chips.

Thus, the list of affected devices includes a host of MacBook Pro, iMac, and Mac Pro models that come packed with AMD graphics.

The distortion might spread through the entire screen when using external displays. Apple starts the troubleshooting process with the most common tech support advice, suggesting users to update their AMD graphics drivers for the Windows Boot Camp installation to the latest version.

The company has suggested a workaround in case the latest AMD drivers aren’t available for your device. Users can lower the screen resolution of the affected display by going to Display Settings. The screen resolution shouldn’t be greater than 3840×2160.

However, Apple notes that the said workaround won’t work in the case of bigger screens, including the pocket burning Pro Display XDR and LG UltraFine 4K and 5K displays.
