The blue screen has been changed to a black screen in Microsoft’s newest operating system.
A familiar sight (albeit unwanted) to Windows users, the iconic blue screen of death (BSOD) has suffered its demise in Microsoft’s latest operating system.
In Window’s 11, a black screen will replace blue while matching the new black logo and shutdown screens. However, the QR code, error logs and sad face symbol will remain unchanged.
Microsoft first introduced the BSOD in Windows 3.0, which allows IT professionals to diagnose hardware and memory faults.
In 2012, the sad face was added to the screen while in 2016, a QR code was added to allow users to scan and find out more information about the fault.
Microsoft has not explained why the blue screen has been changed to black, however.
Windows users can look forward to other new features in the Windows 11 upgrade such as the Xbox app and a cleaner user interface.
