Microsoft’s latest Cumulative Update KB4512941 for Windows 10 May 2019 Update(1903) may be Microsoft’s buggiest yet, with the update already know for being plagued with high CPU usage bugs and crippled search.

Now reports of a new bug are filtering in, with users reporting that their screenshots all having an orange tint, no matter which method or app they use to take them.

On Microsoft Answers one user notes:

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.

I have the night mode off, and everything else is regular.

Another note:

I am having the same problem, or maybe a bit worse.

When I start Windows, the login screen looks good, but when I put my credentials and the desktop is shown, it gradually starts turning red. The only element that remains with the correct colour is the mouse pointer.

This is an example of how my screen looks like while reading this post.

The issue appears to be related to older video drivers, as updating drivers (or uninstalling KB4512941) appears to fix this problem. Microsoft has not yet added the issue to the known issues of the update.
