Discord is one of gamers’ most used voice communication platforms, so it’s very annoying when you’re met with errors in the middle of its use. One of the most common problems is the appearance of a yellow border when screen sharing on Discord. Here’s how to fix it.
How to solve the Discord Yellow border?
This problem doesn’t have one solution that works for every instance, but you can try these three things to solve it:
- Restart your Discord application
- Download Discord’s latest version.
- Share your screen using fullscreen mode.
Why does my Discord have a yellow outline?
This problem appeared when Discord allowed players to play games and watch video streaming platforms together. This problem appears whenever someone tries to screen share what they’re doing on a discord server, primarily when you’ve just launched the application.
According to a Reddit thread, the problem may also be caused because the team used a new form of graphics capture. This is further explained in the thread by Jake, a staff member of Discord:
We are using a new form of graphics capture. However, on older versions of windows (windows 10) specifically, this graphics capture interface would make the window being captured having a yellow border. On windows 11, it does not have the yellow border.
We had a bug in the code that was not detecting this appropriately.
For now, we are rolling back this new capture interface, so that we can fix this issue, so in around ~30 minutes we should have this fix deployed to the stable client – and the yellow borders will be gone following a reload of your client.
