Windows 10 BSOD to get QR codes

Posted on Wednesday, April 13 2016 @ 13:55:23 CEST by

Microsoft came up with an interesting idea to make troubleshooting of Blue Screen of Deaths in Windows 10 easier. Should you encounter a BSOD in the latest Windows 10 Insider Preview build 14316, you will be greeted by a prominently featured QR code.

After scanning the QR code with your smartphone or tablet, you will be taken to a website that offers more information about the crash. At the moment, it's still a work in progress though:
Right now, it just points to windows.com/stopcode, which explains typical Blue-Screen-of-Death causes, but in future it could contain detailed information about the crash – or something a little more user-friendly than something like MACHINE_CHECK_EXCEPTION.
