Redirecting a question

While browsing Microsoft Q&A, you will often find the same question being asked multiple times. If you run into this situation, redirect those questions to a popular question which has a workable solution detailed and potentially an accepted answer to the question the users are looking for.

How to redirect a question

  1. On any question (Question A), click on the "Gear" icon and click on "Redirect“.
  2. A dialogue is provided where you can search for the question title of the question you want to redirect to (Question B).
  3. Once you have found it, select it and click "OK" to complete the redirection from Question A to Question B.

You will see banner that says "The question was successfully redirected".

Important

Only moderators, Microsoft Q&A administrators, and the original poster of a question can redirect a question on Q&A.
