    Sorry for necroposting, but I noticed that the solution/cause for this happening was never posted. The cause for this is pressing WIN+F. This opens the feedback hub as well as creating a new screenshot in the pictures folder.
    It was Win + ? at the time, as I think I mentioned earlier in the thread.

    The change in keyboard shortcuts to Win + F was only made in a Windows version in June 2016, which was after this thread.

    New keyboard shortcut for Feedback Hub on PC: We love getting your feedback, and want to make it even easier for you to get into Feedback Hub on PC builds. To capture a screenshot and launch Feedback Hub please use they keyboard shortcut Windows key + F. This opens Feedback Hub and attaches a screenshot of your PC (you can review and remove this before you submit). The old PC keyboard shortcut of Windows key + SHIFT + ? will stop working because of this change.

    This happend to me twice. It is very similar to the Win+F shortcut, but one picture is from downloading WoW. I was not there to push anything, and the format of the pictures is different from the Win + F function.

    IMO I think MS will do it with or without permission if they are doing it.

    did win +F on Win10 Creator edition, before I had no such folder/image when I pressed the combo keys you suggest
    it loads Feedback HUB, and asks to log in. I close the program and checked in;

    C:\Users\THISPC\AppData\Local\Packages\Microsoft.WindowsFeedbackHub_8wekyb3d8bbwe found northing but empty folders, Looked in X:\Pictures\Feedback\{8708BC19-7E3B-4251-8958-0620E07EEE51} found a screen shot of what was on my screen (in this case the forum)

    I guess it takes a screenshot when you try to get help for a displayed error message, I would not call it "Spying"
    as I did not log in , did not submit anything. and easily deleted form drive.
