    How to Send Feedback to Microsoft in Windows 10


    You can use the Feedback Hub app to help Microsoft make Windows better! Provide feedback about Windows and apps by sharing your suggestions or problems. If you want to be even more involved, then join the Windows Insider program and keep up with the latest alerts and announcements, rate the builds, participate in feedback Quests, and earn badges.

    You do not have to join the Windows Insider Program to send feedback (ex: bug report) via the Feedback Hub app though.

    As part of the Windows Insider Program, Microsoft wants to get your feedback in real time, so occasionally you will be asked for feedback while you are using Windows. For example, if you open up the new Start menu and rearrange the tiles, you may get a prompt notification from the Windows Feedback app asking what you thought about it. You could then just click/tap on the prompt, and Microsoft will ask a few questions about what you think of the feature or scenario. And donít worry about hurting feelingsóbe honest!

    OPTION FOUR

    To Send Feedback in Feedback Hub app



    The Feedback Hub app lets you tell Microsoft about any problems you run in to while using Windows 10 and send suggestions to help us improve your Windows experience.

    Sending a suggestion or reporting a problem can be as easy as finding feedback similar to yours and upvoting it. However, if there isnít feedback like yours, then go ahead and create some new feedback for us. You can even attach some screenshots or recreate a problem to help us see what youíre experiencing.

    Hi Shawn,

    Now that Windows 10 has been released publicly, but still including the Feedback app, I wonder if it would be worth tweaking the title to help folks new to the Forum who've just started using Windows 10 (and didn't use the Feedback app as Insiders) find it more easily, if they want to send a Bug Report to Microsoft.

    Something like 'Feedback and Bug Reports- Send to Microsoft in Window 10', perhaps?

    Also, the WinKey - ? Keyboard shortcut is useful, because it opens the Feedback app straightaway with a screenshot, so I'd suggest adding that to Option Four?

    Hey David, :)

    Good point. I can't change the title without breaking links, but I did change the description to help. I added the keyboard shortcut to OPTION FOUR as well.

    Starting with Windows 10 Insider Preview Build 14342, when you create new feedback, the Feedback Hub will suggest categories and subcategories based on the title and description you entered. If you see a suggestion that looks right, just click it to fill in the menus and get your feedback to the right engineers quickly.

    Starting with Windows 10 Insider Preview Build 14352, you’ll now see short status tags on feedback to let you know what we’re doing with it. The tags are a short-form way to give status on feedback we’re actively working on or have made changes for. The tags will often be published along with a “Microsoft response” comment that gives more context on what the team is doing. This change also replaces the “Received” tag that you’ve been seeing on all feedback with something much more useful and informative!

    Hi Shawn,
    Great article as always. A small request, can you add a section on how to share the Feedback link with others?

    People often ask about this when I link your article and I have to write a long post explaining to them how to do the same.

    I don't think it's now possible to upvote a problem, only a suggestion (perhaps since the last revamp of Feedback Hub in August 2019?)
