Everyone has heard that the blue screen of death (BSOD) is displayed when your Windows PC crashes. But did you know that Windows 10 also has a green screen of death?
The green death screen appears only when you run an Insider Preview version of Windows 1
In other words, anything that causes a blue screen of death on a normal version of Windows 10 triggers a green screen of death in an insider preview version of Windows 10. The only difference is that the screen displays that you are using a "Windows insider build" that has a green background instead of a blue one.
The green color indicates that the defect was caused by unstable development builds of Windows 10. These insider builds often have crashes and bugs that would not occur with a normal version of Windows 10. Microsoft sometimes alerts you to "Green Screen" errors that Windows Insiders may encounter when you run this development software.
If a Green Screen of Death (GSOD) appears on your computer PC, tha This is a sign that you are using an Insider Preview Build from Windows 10. The problem could just be a bug in the unstable build, though it could also be a deeper problem with the hardware or drivers of your PC. You will not know for sure until you return to a stable version of Windows 10.
Microsoft made this change again in the Creators Update, which was released in April 2017. Previously used insider builds of Windows 10 the standard Blue Screens of Death.
