Windows 10 was introduced as a user service rather than a standalone system deployment over every few years. There are some pros and cons to it, but one of the most distinguished negatives concerns more power for the service provider. And this includes a ted overzealous Feedback policy and numerous annoying background notifications about other Microsoft products. One of those is “How likely are you to recommend Windows 10 to a friend or colleague?” prompt with 1-to-5 rating slider.

Sincerely, even though this pop-up is bothersome, it can be disabled with the relative ease. So, today, we’ll show you how to do it.

How to disable annoying Feedback prompts in Windows 10

Since the first release of Windows 10 to this day, Microsoft hasn’t changed the approach to a greater extent. You’ll still run into a periodical prompt about Edge or Office 365, which are nothing else but ads for their products built in the user interface. They are provided through Action Center and notifications, most of the time. Nonetheless, after the backlash concerning the privacy infringement and ad policy in Windows 10, an end-user got more control over the system.

With that said, the feedback prompts like “How likely are you to recommend Windows 10 to a friend or colleague?” with the scale-voting system is not something mandatory. You can disable it without too much effort in the Settings app. Furthermore, if you deem it needed, you can provide feedback at your own comfort later on.
