Microsoft collects feedback, diagnostic and usage data that helps them identify and troubleshoot problems, improve their products and services, and provide you with personalized experiences. This data is transmitted to Microsoft and stored with one or more unique identifiers that can help them recognize an individual user on an individual device and understand the device’s service issues and use patterns. They share this data with a limited number of their Engineers, but they may also share personal data, among Microsoft-controlled affiliates and subsidiaries, and with vendors or agents working on their behalf, to make the OS better.

If you want to disable Windows Feedback, open WinX Menu > Settings app > Privacy settings > Feedback & diagnostics.

Here under Feedback frequency, you will see a drop-down menu for – Windows should ask for my feedback. Select Never.

You may want to also select Basic for Diagnostic and usage data, under Send your device data to Microsoft section, if you want to limit the data being sent.
