Windows 10: Windows Feedback App went missing after TH2 update. Solved

    Windows Feedback App went missing after TH2 update.


    Hi there, I have a problem. Few weeks ago I have upgraded to Windows 10 TH2. After some time I have noticed that Windows Feedback app went missing, and I can't find a way to install it back. I tried searching for it at the store, it's not there.
    I have tried Powershell command where it re-installs all other Windows 10 apps, however that only makes things worse - it deletes some other apps like Windows Store, and won't install them back anymore, giving me bunch of red error lines. I had to run a restore backup once, just to restore most of the apps. I did it successfully but Windows Feedback App is still missing.
    Is it supposed to be like that or what? Because on my main home PC, I did the upgrade too, and and the app is there, all fine, but not on the laptop.
    Is there a manual way to install this one app somehow?

    It should be under W in All apps list.
    You don't see it there ?

    Try this............ Just a long shot.
    Start button > Settings > select System > left side, select App & features > right side, select Manage optional features > right side, select add a feature > the list is in alphabetic order. Scroll to W, can you find Windows feedback ? OR E for Feedback ?

    No, it wasn't there, I gave up after searching for countless hours, so I have decided to download Media Creation Tool and ran an upgrade again. This way I kept all my files and programs, and now all apps are back. So I guess problem solved.

    Yes, reinstalling definite can solve that problem.

    Thank you for the follow-up.
