    Default Providing Feedback to Microsoft on Win 8 CP: FAQ

    Microsoft has released the Win 8 CP in order to get feedback from consumers on this beta OS. To provide feedback to MS check this link

    This link goes to the FAQ section of the Win 8 CP web site. Please read it carefully prior to downloading and installing the OS.

    There us a nifty MS download feedback tool also, as if for a beta, FeedbackTool-x64 dot msi. Uncertain if vavailable to all, apparently it picks up windows live id on doenlad and there is some sort of access control on it based I think on the live id. Anyway it runs von the win8 partitions where I downloaded a seaparate copy but the downloads are denied access if run on wifferent win8 partitions...

    I'd like to both clarify something & together w/ that make an offer...

    Yes, we have provided a link to a MS page that answers the question, "How do I provide feedback" & tells you to go to the MS Windows8 Forums site. That is a public access site & the idea is the MS & the Win8 Build Team sees what get put there.

    Then, the Send Feedback Tool is mentioned. This comes from the same location where registered Beta Testers get the things they work on for Microsoft. This includes Operating System betas. The SFT provides beta-testers w/ a direct communication path to the Build Team for specific products being critiqued.

    I am one of those MS Beta-testers. I was accepted prior to Vista, worked on it w/ its Build Team for a year, was invited back for Windows7 (did that one for a year) & now, again, for Windows8. As such, my ISOs don't come from the public site and I have the Send Feedback Tool that comes w/ my ISO.

    That said, here's the offer... If, you have a concise, well-worded bug to report, bit of criticism or praise, something you want to see added, removed or changed. Pass it to me, let me see it & I would be willing to, @ least, consider submitting it to the Team.

    Cheers,
    Drew

    am uncertain what un-stick means, am supposing is stays not toward the top of the form topic list. BUT I am quite sure MS is considering whether or not to tinker with more things, as they did in the shipping RTM where among other things there is a little demo about getting into the charms menu (a task that confounded me the first time I saw it lol). I;m not sure when it (unlike windows versions in general) stopped changing drive letters around depending on which one has the running OS, but it is no longer C and the one it is stays where it belongs i.e. in drive letter order, to me a most welcome if small change. If there are any outright bugs in it, as opposed to things I would do differently, I have not yet found any. TTFN.

    This was originally a Sticky Thread, bur it was written during Win 8 CP days. Good idea to unstick the thread. It's also now closed
