Bound to tradition
As the official release notes of Windows 11 Insider Preview Built 22000.346 reveal, Microsoft is bringing back the blue screen known for many years instead of the black screen introduced only in the Windows 11 release.
As with previous versions of Windows we changed the color of the screen to blue when the device stops working or a shutdown error occurs.
Most recently in Windows 95 and Windows 98, the blue screen became a company under Windows as a scenario for applications, services, drivers or the complete operating system crash. With the release of the first pre-release version of Windows 11, Microsoft wanted to break this “tradition” and paint the display black.
Next roll backwards
The idea of locals wanting to reclaim the well-known blue screen apparently moved Microsoft back to a character, not the first time. With the Fall 2022 Update alias Windows 11 22 H2, drag and drop will return to the taskbar.
