A BSOD (blue screen of death) error (also called a stop error) can occur if a problem causes your PC to shut down or restart unexpectedly (aka: crash). When you experience this type of error, you wonâ€™t be able to see things like the Start menu or the taskbar on the screen when your PC is turned on. Instead you might see a blue screen with a message that your PC ran into a problem and needs to restart.
Windows has a hidden feature that you can enable to be able to manually force a BSOD by holding down the rightmostÂ CtrlÂ key, and press theÂ Scroll LockÂ key twice.
This tutorial will show you how to enable or disable the ability to manually force a BSOD crash on Ctrl+Scroll Lock for all users in Windows 10 and Windows 11.
