Tutorial Remove the Feedback Smiley Button in Microsoft Edge

As Microsoft continues developing the Chromium-based Microsoft Edge, you might have noticed the Feedback smiley located in the top right corner. Clicking the smiley face will open a Send Feedback page. There's currently no setting to remove the smiley, but we can remove the Feedback button using the registry.


  1. Open Regedit (Windows Key + R, type in Regedit, press Enter) and navigate to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Edge.
  2. Right-click on the right side of the screen when at the Edge key and create a New > 32-bit DWORD Value and name that UserFeedbackAllowed.
  3. Double-click on your new UserFeedbackAllowed entry and use one of the two following options:

UserFeedbackAllowed = 1 - the smiley button is visible (used by default).
UserFeedbackAllowed = 0 - the smiley button is disabled.
