    The announcement was buried in the release notes for build 14371 of Windows 10, released a few days ago.

    Looks like it rerquires you to be logged in with a MS account, then I get a CHOOSE window but still end up with a blank page.

    Ahha!, set it to TWINUI and it opens the Insider Hub, imagine that

    When you click on the link (ex: in IE11), you should be prompted to "Allow" access to open the Feedback Hub app on your computer to the "Reactivating Windows 10 after a hardware change" announcement.
