Microsoft fixes color filters in Windows 11 that lack these accessibility-friendly sliders

August 10, 2023

In the recently-released Windows 11 Insider Preview Build 25926 for insiders in the Canary channel, the color filters in Windows 11 are getting a nice update. Here’s how. 

The Redmond-based tech giant has announced that it is adding new accessibility-friendly sliders. The new sliders, which had been made available since Build 25921, will allow users to fine-tune the intensity and color boost of the filters, making them more effective for people with color blindness or other vision impairments.

The new sliders are available in the Settings app under Accessibility > Color Filters. The first slider controls the intensity of the filter, while the second slider controls the color boost. Users can drag the sliders to their desired settings to create a custom color filter that works best for them.

Though, in addition to the new sliders, Microsoft has also fixed an issue where the labels for these sliders were missing. The labels will now appear as expected in a future flight of Windows 11.

Microsoft is working on a lot of new features for Windows 11 Build 25926. Insiders have spotted a hidden feature for System Components in the Settings app, and there is also support for JXR files as desktop backgrounds. Additionally, a new button has been added that allows users to edit screenshots and video captures in Microsoft Paint or Clipchamp.
