Solutions : Remove Windows 7 Beta ‘Send Feedback’ link & wallpaper watermark

Save to 0 hits!

The Windows 7 beta release just like Vista preview releases before it incorporate some additional UI elements meant for testers to submit feedback back to Microsoft. Now considering you may be running this Beta 1 release as your main OS for some reason, one of those elements in particular can become annoying and obtrusive to your otherwise neat configured desktop.

Removing the Send Feedback link:

  1. Run the Registry Editor (type regedit on the start run menu)
  2. Browse to the following registry key: HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Desktop
  3. If it’s not already there, add a new DWORD (32-bit) value “FeedbackToolEnabled” and set its data field to 0.
  4. The change should take effect on your next restart.

An alternative way to do this is to run this registry key file. Just download, run and then restart.

Note: We all should submit our feedback to Microsoft. It’s obvious that’s the reason Microsoft is giving away the OS code at this stage, so if you come across some obvious bugs please submit them so developers can get them fixed in future revisions.
