How to Use the ‘Reliability Monitor’ Tool in Windows 10


Although Windows 10 is right now the most popular desktop operating system, it’s not without its flaws. Compared to other desktop operating systems, the number of bugs is high on Windows 10. That’s the only reason why Microsoft pushes frequent updates to Windows 10. Each of the updates fixes the existing bugs and adds the new ones.

A regular user often deals with different types of errors while using Windows. Driver Errors, BSOD errors, frequent crashes, etc., were nothing new for a Windows user. Since Microsoft knows that their operating system is not without flaws, they have introduced a utility known as ‘Reliability Monitor.’

Reliability Monitor offers a quick and user-friendly interface that displays all recent software and hardware crashes. It clearly lists all random shutdowns, hardware errors, system errors, etc. The tool is meant to help users identify system problems, but it can help you in multiple ways.
