Black Screen of Death in Windows 11, does it have the same ring to it?

Black Screen of Death

The blue screen of death is probably familiar to a lot of Windows users. To many it represents hours of googling and reading before eventually arriving at the solution. Now apparently Microsoft will be switching to a Black Screen of Death for Windows 11, matching the new black logon and shutdown screens.

Microsoft is changing its famous Blue Screen of Death (BSOD) to black in Windows 11. The software giant started testing its new design changes in a Windows 11 preview earlier this week, but the Black Screen of Death isn’t fully enabled yet.

It’s the first major change to the BSOD since Microsoft added a sad face to the screen in Windows 8 in 2012, and QR codes in 2016.
