Home » News » Microsoft fixes colored box text issue in Windows 10 apps

Microsoft released the new build 15025 for Windows 10 this week, which includes a few new features to the system, including braille support for Windows 10. It also addresses some of the known issues from previously-released builds.

One of the issues Microsoft explicitly marked as solved in this build is the graphics problem in some UWP apps that caused Insiders with older graphics chipsets to see colored boxes in the place of text. The first inclination for fixing this issue was updating graphics card drivers but as it turns out, the problem was system-side.

We fixed an issue resulting in some Insiders using PCs with certain older chipsets seeing colored boxes in the place of text and various other UI in UWPs apps.

Insiders who’ve been facing this issue don’t need to do anything to resolve it other than install build 15025. To acquire the new build, go to Settings > Updates & security and check for updates. Remember, you need to be on the Fast Ring of Windows Insider program to be able to download this build.

If you’ve already installed Windows 10 Preview build 15025 on your computer, please let us know in the comments if Microsoft’s solution proved to be legitimate. If you have other graphical problems in Windows 10, you should check out our article about it or simply wait for another Preview build.
