Microsoft will be adding QR codes to the "Blue Screen of Death"

 

Microsoft will be adding QR codes to the "Blue Screen of Death" to allow users to easily troubleshoot crashes. All users will need to do is scan the QR code and they will be lead to a webpage that will help them troubleshoot the specific kind of crash that had just occurred. 

This new feature has been added to the latest insider build for Windows 10, build 14316, where QR codes will take users to the www.windows.com/stopcode website, which contains common BSOD causes and potential fixes.

 Hopefully, this new feature will serve to help users when the update is released to all Windows 10 users later this year, but Microsoft will need to make sure that the system does not automatically reboot before the user has the chance to scan the QR code. 

 

You can join the discussion on Microsoft's adding QR codes to Windows 10 BSODs on the OC3D Forums.

I don't think it's a bad thing.

edit - although it would be nice if the QR takes you to a page that says "Chill everything crashes now and then" unless it's the same fault a few times in a row then it can troubleshoot.Quote

Dumbing it down? This should have been in since QR codes were relevant, printing a hex string isn't even interpretable.Quote

Go back to Windows 7 and before it was a normal BSOD it wasn't a dumbed down version.

Just cause Microsoft has added QR codes do you really think it's going to be anything different the information is going to be the same as what it is now, They have just made it easier for the "User" to scan a code and going to the Microsoft website.Quote

I am referring to Windows 7 BSOD. I don't see why you're complaining about scanning a QR code as opposed to manually typing a huge string of hexadecimals.Quote
