Windows 7: Removing Send Feedback link

The first question that I think you would ask is, "”Why would I want to do that?” like a couple of reasons like, to prevent accidentally opening the send feedback form when what I only want is to minimize the window or you only want to do feedbacks at the link / icon on your desktop?

Before we do the steps:

So in order to remove this link, fire up your Registry editor by clicking run, then type in REGEDIT and navigate in the HKCU and expand Control Panel then also expand Desktop. Find the entry FeedbackToolEnabled right click it then choose modify


In this window, replace the Value data with a zero “0” and click okey.


You may have to log-off for your settings to take effect 😀






So there, no more send feedback link on your Windows and Forms. But still, don’t forget to send your feedback, a link is still in your desktop.

Thanks to sir Jojo Ayson for showing this to PHIWUG at the WebRampUp 😀
