Last updated: September 4, 2018 

Pesky Windows 10 feedback requests can be incessant. The collection of feedback is for improving the operating system and peripheral products and services. User feedback sent to Microsoft helps to identify and troubleshoot issues. In turn, Microsoft can provide users with a more problem-free and personalized service. If feedback requests become intrusive, change their frequency or turn off feedback in Windows 10.

By default, Windows 10 feedback frequency is set to Automatically (Recommended). If you have come here to find out how to turn it off, chances are good that Automatically is too frequent. Modify the feedback frequency to a longer time frame, or turn it off.

Turn Off the Feedback Frequency in Settings

Click or tap Windows Feedback. You can also just use the search bar to search for Windows Feedback. Once you launch the app, a prompt to log into your Microsoft account will display.
