We’ve just posted the following news: Windows 10’s BSODs now feature a QR code to provide additional info about crashes[newsimage]http://www.myce.com/wp-content/images_posts/2016/04/microsoft-bsod-qr-code-95x75.png[/newsimage]

The latest Windows 10 Technical Preview shows a QR code on the Blue Screen of Death (BSOD). By scanning the code users should get more information about the reason their system crashed.

Oh, that’s good we can all use 10 without worrying now. :bigsmile:

No doubt that code will lead you to a site with a wealth of valuable information, specific to your crash, and everything you could possibly need to fix it.

Not.

Not.[/QUOTE] The QR code in the blue screen in the article points to a generic page “Troubleshoot blue screen errors”, not a page related to a specific problem. (I used a QR scanner on my phone).

So yeah, probably not.

^ In other words, that QR code is generic and the same for all BSOD possibilities?

Now how helpful isn’t that! No I didn’t write down the error code as I got something better for you, a generic QR code… You know, if that holds true… It would actually be nice if they did not deliberately work against us. :frowning:

I remember once upon a time when Microsoft promised us that BSODs were a thing of the past. When was that, Windows 7, Vista? :rolleyes:

Man, my stomach muscles hurt. Sure it was not 1st of April once upon a time.

I guess I have a completely different way of thinking than Microsoft, since I would do something stupid, like… give the users an error code, or show some kind of debugging text that the users can Google. That’s why Microsoft makes the big bucks: instead of giving you information you can work with, they give you a bunch of one-size-fits-all crap. Isn’t that smart of them?

PS: Didn’t Alan Turing prove a century ago that one set of instructions can’t be applied to every problem?
