In recent years we have seen lots of tech companies no longer bother trying to create the perfect product using their own heads and instead they just go by customer or user feedback. If enough people share the same sentiments about an issue, then it will be looked into by the Windows team of developers and perhaps even acted upon.

Microsoft was not historically one of those companies until Windows 10 came around. Now there is something Microsoft calls “telemetry data” that it collects from its users. People can let Microsoft know their feelings about Windows and any problems that they have had with it by submitting their thoughts to the feedback hub. You might have noticed the odd notification popping up from the Action Center asking you something along the lines of “how satisfied were you with….” Should you opt to click on the notification to give feedback, it will direct you to the feedback hub which is just a feedback application that Microsoft had added to its own operating system. That feedback then gets passed through to the Windows developers to assess.

It’s a strategy that has done wonders for some of the leading tech corporations out there in the world. Google is a prime example of a company that loves to go by the feedback from its readers, still catering to what the average person wants instead of what is truly best (you’ll notice the chance to give feedback at the bottom of each search results page you visit if you look closely enough). Those small links get used a lot because of the sheer volume the search engine gets. If the text were any larger, they would be inundated with complaints.

Since Google is leading the way in tech, it’s no surprise that others are following in their footsteps. However, if you are not a fan of the feedback notifications from Windows, Microsoft does offer you the chance to change the frequency of the notifications arriving, which is better than nothing.

Here is what you need to change the frequency of the feedback notifications you get from Microsoft when using a version of the Windows 10 operating system.

How to Change Feedback Frequency in Windows 10

You can change the feedback frequency in the Privacy section of the Settings app in Windows 10. Here is how to do that:

1. Open the Settings app.

2. Click on the Privacy category.

3. In the Privacy left menu, click Feedback and Diagnostics. And then on the right side of the same window, under the Feedback Frequency heading, click the drop-down menu and select Automatically (recommended), Always, Once a day, Once a week, or Never.

In conclusion, that is how to change the feedback frequency in Windows 10.
