How to turn off annoying comment notifications in Windows 11

The notification center in Windows 11 can be a useful and powerful tool to know what is happening in your PC’s operating system, but Microsoft has configured it in this latest version in a rather intrusive way that, as we have already mentioned , it can even become very annoying. Thus, disabling these comment notifications in Windows 11 can help you have greater peace of mind when using your PC, without panels that bother you and interrupt you with something that, moreover, most likely does not even interest you.

This is how comments are disabled in Windows 11

Luckily, turning off these notifications in Windows 11 is pretty easy. To do this, click the Start button and select Settings (the gear icon), or alternatively right-click Start and select Settings. Now, in the menu on the left, click on “Privacy and security”, and then, under the “Windows permissions” section, look for “Feedback and diagnostics”.

The next thing you should do in the window that appears next is to look, in the lower area, for the Comments section, and just below you will see “Comment frequency”, which is Automatically selected by default. There, display the menu and simply select “Never”. With this you will have completely disabled the notifications that ask you to comment on Windows 11.

In this same window you can choose other privacy options in Windows 11; we personally recommend turning it all off, as you can see in the screenshot above.

What if they reappear?

It is possible that after installing one of the many automatic updates of Windows 11, suddenly these annoying notifications appear again for you to make comments about the operating system, especially after large updates such as those that arrive semi-annually. If so, you can repeat the process that we have explained in the previous section, but you can also use a little trick, a little more laborious but equally simple, to disable them permanently.

To do this, we are going to use the powerful tool registry editor of Windows, but as always when we are going to use it, we feel obliged to warn you that it is quite dangerous if you touch where you shouldn’t, so we recommend that you make a backup of the registry before anything else (for this, once you access the Registry Editor, click File -> Export to save it to a file).

To open the Registry Editor, simply right-click on the Start button and select “Run”. In the window that appears, type regedit and click OK.

In the window that opens, you can either navigate through the menu on the left, or write or paste the following in the bar indicated in the screenshot above:

ComputerHKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESOFTWAREPoliciesMicrosoftWindowsDataCollection

Once there, on the right side, click on an empty space with the right mouse button and select New -> DWORD Value (32-bit) to create a new record, which by default will be called “New Value #1” but will allow you to rename it from the start. you must call him DoNotShowFeedbackNotifications and then double click on it to edit it. In the “Value data” field, change the default 0 to 1 and click OK.

Ready, once this is done you can close the Windows Registry Editor and restart the PC for the changes to take effect. After that, Windows should never remove the notification for you to give your comments.
