Microsoft's Windows 10 has been widely embraced for being more intuitive and less clunky than Windows 8. Microsoft went out of its way to make it more streamlined, and it shows.
Windows 10 is also more interactive. Its virtual assistant Cortana, for instance, can listen to you and make suggestions. If you have a flight later today, Windows 10 can suggest you leave now because of traffic delays. The downside to Windows 10 is that Microsoft is collecting loads of your personal information.
That includes your calendar, emails, location and more. Worse, Microsoft doesn't make it easy for you to tinker with your privacy settings after your initial installation.
Fortunately, there is a solution. O&O ShutUp10 puts all of your privacy settings onto one screen. Those settings are currently scattered over many pages.
After you download O&O ShutUp10, choose "Run" to open it as a pop-up window. You'll see dozens of entries under these headers: Security, Windows Defender and Microsoft SpyNet, Privacy, Synchronization of Windows Settings, Cortana (Personal Assistant), Location Services, User Behavior, Windows Update and Miscellaneous.
