Is there is a way to make windows to not save the problem reports

Every time I program crash or somethings goes wrong,windows creates a error report which is supposed to be sended to Microsoft for a solution.
Most of the time(if not all of the time),when I program crash,I was expecting it to crash or I know the reason or I'm trying something multiple times that makes a program crash every time.
For every crash,windows saves new report again and again to no end.

One other example is that I have the drivers installed for my build in video card but the card is disabled and windows saves report every single time I start the pc that a service related to the igpu stopped working(obviously because the card is disabled)

I just want to see the report once,when the dialog appear when I program crash,not keep constantly growing collection or error reports that is writing them to my ssd.

You can type services into the search bar of you star menu and disable the actual service as such, but be aware that doing so will not allow for the experts here to decipher an error log should a problem need fixing FYI

Berkey I remembered about this 2 minutes after I created the thread but I wasn't behind the pc till now to try it.
This kinda works but I wanted to at least see the details about the error(sometimes it's a useful hint what caused the problem and it useful to me).
Is there is a way to see the report but not save\keep it

I know how to see all the reports but what I'm actually asking is windows to not keep those reports\wait for me to delete them. Like this: 1.Stat a program and for some reason that program crash 2.The dialog asking me to send the report for a solution and details about the problem appear 3.Closing that window will not keep the report

Not that I'm aware of.

It's pretty much enable it and manually clear the history, or disable it for no reports.

I don't get enough crash reports to know if that's an option when "viewing the current report".
I'll try and remember to pay attention next time i get a report, to see what's possible.
I don't know if there is some "tweak", perhaps a registry setting...to do what you want.

One possibility is to set up a scheduled task to periodically delete "old reports".
Then you wouldn't have to manually delete "old reports".

in the action center under "Problem reporting" There is a "Select programs to exclude from reporting option" there that you're welcome to explore if you'd rather customize instead of completely disable error reporting in Windows 7.
