Windows 7 Beta: Remove the Send Feedback Link from the Title Bar

Posted January 12, 2009 by Rob Rogers in Windows 7

Beta 1 for Windows 7 places a Send Feedback link in the toolbar of each window that is opened. If you find yourself accidentally clicking this link often, or if you just want it removed, follow these steps.

1. Open Notepad.

2. Copy and paste the following into the new text document:

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
 
[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Desktop]
"FeedbackToolEnabled"=dword:00000000

3. Save the document as remove_send_feedback_link.reg.

4. Double-click the new file to merge it into the Registry.

5. Continue through the UAC prompt and confirm that you wish to perform the action.

6. Logoff and then log back on to your account.

The Send Feedback link is now removed.
