How to Disable ‘Send Feedback’ link in Windows 7 Beta

image While I am not against providing feedback to Microsoft on their Windows 7 beta, I have constantly clicked on the ‘send feedback’ link on the top right of every window by accident.

To remove it:

  • Run Regedit (Start button – type ‘regedit’)
  • Navigate to:

         HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Desktop

  • Change the ‘FeedbackToolEnabled’ key to 0 (it is set at 3 by default)
  • Reboot

    if you don't want to reboot, you can just log off and log in

    btw what happens if changed to 1 or 2 instead of 0?
