How to Stop Windows From Restarting After a BSOD

It’s frustrating every time your Windows computer crashes, but what’s even worse is when you don’t even know that a Blue Screen of Death has occurred. This happened to me the other day when I came back to my computer after leaving it for an extended break and letting it go into sleep mode. I noticed that some things were amiss — my apps were closed and my wallpaper that I had just changed had reverted to a previous state, but because I wasn’t there in person to witness the BSOD, it took me a minute to figure that out.

In our article on how to fix a BSOD, we explain the steps you can take to view the memory dump file and try to diagnose and remediate your problem. However, the first step is knowing you have a problem and that, by default, Windows 10 is set to automatically reboot a few seconds after it shows the Blue Screen.  If you walked away from your computer at that time, you wouldn’t even notice or, if you were there, you might not be quick enough to see what the error message is.
