Remove Send Feedback Link from Window Title

Posted December 2008 by Steve Sinchak

Many of the Windows 7 test builds include a Send Feedback link on the top of each open window.  While I'm an advocate of sending Microsoft feedback on beta builds I like to do it through the link on the desktop and prefer not to clutter the titlebar.

With the help of a quick registry tweak it is possible to remove the titlebar Send Feedback link permanently:

  1. Click on the start button and start up the Registry Editor by typing in regedit and hitting Enter.
  2. Once RegEdit is open, navigate through HKEY_Current_User, Control Panel and Desktop.
  3. Modify FeedbackToolEnable and set the value to 0.

4. Restart.
