How to disable Windows Feedback on Windows 10

Windows 10 does a lot of data collecting by default which you may disable for the most part using the Settings application or one of the third-party privacy tools designed to put an end to Microsoft’s hunger for data.

If you work on a Windows 10 computer you may have noticed feedback prompts appearing from time to time as notifications on the device.

Microsoft added the Windows Feedback application to Windows 10 to get answers to questions that telemetry cannot answer. The feedback app, one of the default system applications that Windows 10 ships with and enabled by default, could ask about a user’s satisfaction level for instance among other things.

Disable Windows Feedback

The feedback app has been designed to prompt users for feedback automatically by default. This means that you may prompted a lot, rarely or not at all depending on what you are doing.

It is thankfully pretty easy to disable Windows Feedback so that you are not prompted anymore, or to limit it so that you control how often Windows 10 asks for your feedback.

Here is what you need to do to control feedback in Windows 10:

Use the keyboard shortcut Windows-i to open the settings application. Alternatively, click on Start and open Settings from the Start Menu that opens up.

Select Privacy on the frontpage, and on the privacy page that opens, Feedback & diagnostics. There you find listed the “Feedback frequency” menu which you can use to adjust the frequency of feedback requests.

You can turn feedback off completely under “Windows should ask for my feedback” by selecting “never” or select “always”, “once a day” or “once a week” instead of the default “automatically (recommended).

If you don’t want feedback prompts at all, select never and be done with it for good. The different frequency available limit when Windows asks you for feedback.

While you won’t be asked for feedback anymore, it is still possible for you to provide feedback. This can be useful if you want to make Microsoft aware of an issue that you are experiencing, or simply add your vote to a feedback suggestion of another user.

Simple open the Windows Feedback application manually to do that.

  1. Tap on the Windows-key, select “All Apps” from the start menu, and scroll down until you find Windows Feedback listed there.
  2. You may also tap on the Windows-key, and type “Windows Feedback” to open the app this way.

The app does not interfere with the automatic feedback prompts even if you use it. Please note that you need to sign in to a Microsoft Account to access the Windows Feedback application.

Once done, you may upvote existing issues, or provide Microsoft with feedback of your own.

Closing Words

Providing feedback can be a good way of letting Microsoft know about issues or suggestions that you have. While there is no guarantee that the company will act upon it, it is likely that it monitors feedback closely to spot larger issues at hand.
