How to report problems in Windows 10

Microsoft is a huge company with a long story of developing high-quality software for computers and others devices. No surprise that the majority of people around the world have used or use it on a regular basis. The latest version of Microsoft’s software products is Windows 10 that has been around for quite a while now. But what if you encounter a technical problem with Windows? People from Microsoft made sure you can let them know about it.

How to do it?

An application called “Feedback Hub” is made specially for windows problem reporting if they occur. Back then the application was not pre-installed on your personal computer, but with newer versions of Windows 10, you will have it. In case you do not, there is no need to worry, as you can easily download it for free through the official Microsoft website. Sometimes people do not appreciate the idea of having a separate app for reporting bugs but let’s be honest, it is a great solution nonetheless.

Turn the “Optional diagnostic data” on

First and foremost, make sure you have it turned on, otherwise, you will not be able to use the application. We know it might be unacceptable for people who do not want to trust their browser information, device activity, etc. But if you are fine with it, you should just look for the search bar, which is located in the bottom left of your screen, then type “Diagnostics and Feedback settings”. You will then see the very first “Diagnostic data” subparagraph, in which you will have to put in on “Optional diagnostic data”.

Reporting a problem

If you have already done all of that, all left to do is to open up a “Feedback Hub” using the search bar. You will see a welcome page, where you can either offer something if you want to or report a problem you have faced. Before doing it, make sure the issue you want Microsoft to fix has not been already reported to them using the search bar at the top. If it is not the case, click on the “Report a Problem” icon. Then, choose the language and summarize your problem. If you want a bug to be fixed as soon as possible and help others to solve it, be clear and descriptive. You can also provide more details below, but remember that your feedback is public, so do not mention your personal information. After pressing “Next” you will be transferred to the next page, where you will have to choose the category of a problem. Finally, you can add any attachments to your feedback, such as screenshots, photos, files, or others. Once you have filled in all the required details, just click “submit”. If you have any ideas on how to improve Windows 10, you might as well consider letting Microsoft know about it using the “Suggest a Feature” icon.
