Windows 10 has long had an app for reporting bugs and feature improvements. This app is called the Feedback hub and it is actively monitored by Microsoft. Often, suggestions made by users are incorporated in the OS. Additionally, users have the option to ‘vote’ on a suggested feature and give it better visibility. A feature request, or bug with a lot of votes, is more likely to be picked up/fixed by Microsoft.
Uninstall Feedback Hub
The Feedback Hub on Windows 10 is present on all systems, regardless if a user is enrolled in the Insider program or not. It’s meant for all Windows 10 users but it isn’t a core app. If you do not use it, you can remove it from the system.
There are several different ways to uninstall the Feedback Hub.
1. Uninstall Feedback Hub – Start Menu
The Feedback Hub can be uninstalled from the Start Menu.
- Open the Start Menu.
- Go to the Apps list.
- Right-click the Feedback Hub and select Uninstall from the menu.
- The app will be uninstalled.
2. Uninstall Feedback Hub – Settings app
You can uninstall the Feedback Hub from the Settings app.
- Open the Settings app with the Win+I keyboard shortcut.
- Go to Apps.
- Select Apps & features.
- Select the Feedback hub.
- Click the Uninstall button.
3. Uninstall Feedback Hub – PowerShell
Like all UWP apps on Windows 10, you can uninstall the Feedback Hub from PowerShell. All you need to know is the correct command.
- Open PowerShell with admin rights.
- Run this command: Get-AppxPackage Microsoft.WindowsFeedbackHub| Remove-AppxPackage
- The Feedback Hub will be uninstalled.
Reinstall Feedback Hub
If you uninstall the Feedback Hub, you can install it again any time. Much like the uninstallation process, installing it is easy.
Install Feedback Hub – Microsoft Store
- Visit the Microsoft Store Feedback Hub page in your browser.
- Click Get.
- Open the Microsoft Store app when the browser prompts you to.
- Click Install and the app will be installed.
Most users do not use the Feedback Hub. You’re likely to see a notification from this app before you open it and submit something. That said, if you ever encounter a problem, a persistent one that prevents you from working, the Feedback Hub is a good place to report it. The hub won’t provide a solution for you. It will however highlight the issue and it’s a great way to let Microsoft know there is a problem with Windows 10. On that note, if you’re looking for a solution to a problem online, and someone has reported it to the Feedback Hub, take the time to vote for it.
