'Black Screen of Death' in Windows 11 Changes Color Again To Blue


 Microsoft has again changed the appearance of the 'Screen of Death' in Windows 11. After previously changing the color of the 'Blue Screen of Death' to black, now the color is changed again to blue.

Microsoft originally changed the color of the BSOD to black last July to make its appearance match the log on and shutdown screens in Windows 11. Back then Microsoft did not provide an explanation behind this change, and this time it's the same.


This BSOD color change was discovered by Windows Central in the Windows 11 update build 22000.346. This update has been rolled out for Windows 11 users who are members of the Beta and Insider programs.



"We change the screen color to blue when the device stops working or an error occurs as in previous versions of Windows," Microsoft wrote in the update changelog, as quoted from The Verge, Wednesday (17/11/2021).


Microsoft first introduced the BSOD in Windows 3.0, which was released in 1990. This screen that often makes users panic is helping IT technicians to diagnose hardware problems and memory errors.


The BSOD is Windows' own bug check, and usually contains a collection of data that can help the system administrator to analyze what error is causing the blue screen.


In recent years, Microsoft has continuously updated the BSOD. In 2012, they added sad emoticons in Windows 8, then added QR codes in Windows 10.


It is not known why Microsoft changed the color of the BSOD to blue again. Maybe because the blue color used is very familiar to computer technicians as an indicator of a problem, and choosing black actually makes users and technicians confused.
