Microsoft has hit upon a great idea about the user feedback in their new version of operating system – Windows 10. In Windows 10, the user is asked about what they like and what they think about a certain part of the operating system. This feedback along with some other user statistics is sent to Microsoft servers from time to time. If you do not want to be bothered with such user feedback surveys from being conducted by Microsoft, then you can configure this feedback survey frequency to a lower value or stop the feedback surveys completely. Here is how:
- Click on the Start button and then select Settings from there.
- In the Settings window that opens up, select Privacy.
- Under the Privacy category, choose Feedback & diagnostics from the left side.
- On the right-side, you can choose the Windows user feedback frequency from Automatic, Always, Once a day, Once a week or Never. Obviously, to completely turn off the user feedback surveys, you have to choose Never from the drop-down list.
- You can also choose what type of diagnostics data is sent to Microsoft – basic, enhanced or full.
The option to have the user feedback from the real world users of Windows gives Microsoft an insight into the actual problems or demands that people might face while using this operating system. For continuous development and improvement of Windows, I would not recommend disabling user feedback completely on your Windows 10 PC. But you are bothered by these surveys then you can just adjust the frequency of feedback to a value that you are much more comfortable with.
