Change the audio device or annotation tool

You can change the default settings used by Microsoft Feedback Client for the annotation tool or audio device. The annotation tool that you set automatically opens when you double-click an image within the feedback tool, and the audio device is used when you start a Screen & Voice or a Voice only recording. You might want to make a change if you do not have the default tools available on the computer that you use to provide feedback.

To change a setting, first launch Microsoft Feedback Client. For more information, see Provide feedback using Microsoft Feedback Client.
