Microsoft: Your feedback is important to us. Please stay on the line

So you just got your dirty little fingers on the RC build and you are just dying to send feedback to Microsoft, right? There's just one problem. Unlike with the Beta build, there's no Send Feedback link on every single window, or a shortcut on the desktop. But surely, Microsoft has made it easy to provide them with feedback. I mean, this is a feedback-driven release, right?


The Windows 7 Feedback Tool is a pre-release only tool.  As we work towards finalizing Windows 7 we have removed the launch UI for the Feedback Tool, however the tool itself is still in the RC build.  If you need to report a bug that falls into one of the categories mentioned below, you may run the following command to start the Feedback Tool:

rundll32.exe FeedbackTool.dll,ShowWizard

I'm sure this is adequately documented somewhere. Oh, right. It's documented here on my blog.


Thanks to Freddie K. for the heads-up: The quote above was apparently provided to beta testers only. And by the way, as you can tell from the quote, Microsoft is only looking for certain kinds of feedback now.
