Windows 8 Feedback Tool

Answers

  • I finally figured it out. Here are the steps:

    1. Go to msdn.microsoft.com/subscriptions

    2. Because of Live ID integration, if you're doing this on Windows 8 it will probably automatically log you into MSDN with the Live ID associated with the OS. If this Live ID is not the Live ID associated with your MSDN Subscription you'll need to click the Sign Out link at the top-right corner and log back in with your MSDN subscription ID.

    3. In Subscriber Downloads, scroll down the list on the left until you find the section called 'Operating Systems'

    4. In the 'Operating Systems' section choose 'Windows Developer Preview'

    5. On the right-hand side look for the item titled 'Windows Developer Preview with Apps (x64) - DVD (English)' or 'Windows Developer Preview with Developer Tools and Apps (x64) - DVD (English) '

    6. On either of the previously mentioned items, click on the 'Keys' link.

    7. The 'Keys' are will expand and you will see the link to the Windows Connect site. You will also see a Product Key, which you may be prompted for when you visit the Connect site.

    8. Once you follow the link to the Connect site, click on the 'Downloads' section on the left-hand side and you will see the 'Windows Send Feedback Tool'

  • Sorry, but connect.microsoft.com isn't helpful. There is a specific connect program that isn't apparently public that you must join in order to get the tool.

  • Hello,

     

    I am a student willing to test Windows Developer Preview and contribute by giving feedback. Unfortunately I do not have MSDN subscription and therefore I do not have any access to the feedback tool. What can I do?

     

    Thanks.

  • I "guess" I am lucky in that my MSDN Essentials subscription still hasn't run out (yet...) so Mr. Bienz's suggestion worked for me, but I don't understand why the windows feedback tool required me to re-authenticate by typing my password over again.  I was already logged into Windows Developer Preview when I submitted my feedback so I expected the feedback tool to understand that I was logged in just like the MSDN Forums and Connect site did when I visited them.  

    BTW:

    1. The ability of Windows Developer Preview to take my LiveId as my login and then apply that whenever I visit MSDN and Microsoft connect is wonderful.  It saves me from typing some rather obscure passwords over and over...
    2. The integrated spell check in IE10 of Windows Developer Preview is also wonderful.  I am a horrible speller and I very much appreciate this IE feature.  Thank You Microsoft!!! :-)

  • Oh my - I searched for that connect invite on all download details and didn't expect that keys would hold that information.

    Another (good?) example that some redundancy in how and where information is provided can be helpful to meet different ways of human's logical approaches ;-)
