Microsoft is changing the famous Blue Screen of Death (BSOD) to a black screen in Windows 11.
The legendary blue screen of death for Windows will be black in Windows 11
Microsoft released a preview of Windows 11 earlier this week, but the new Black Screen of Death isn’t fully enabled yet.
It’s the first major change to the blue screen of death since Microsoft added a sad face to the screen in Windows 8 in 2012, and QR codes in 2016.
Microsoft first introduced the blue screen in Windows 3.0, providing a way for technical experts to diagnose hardware and memory failures. The blue screen of death usually includes data that can help administrators analyze the system failure that caused the blue screen to appear.
Although Microsoft now displays the screen in black in Windows 11, the screen is the same as in Windows 10 other than the color only.
