    How to disable Telemetry and Data Collection in Windows 10

    1. Open Registry Editor.
    2. Go to the following Registry key:
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Win dows\DataCollection
    If you do not have such a Registry key, then just create it.

    3. There you need to create a new a 32-bit DWORD value named AllowTelemetry and set it to 0.

    Now, you need to disable a couple of Windows services.
    Right click the File Explorer item in Windows 10 Start menu and pick Manage from its context menu:

    Go to Services and Applications -> Services in the left pane. In the services list, disable the following services:

    Diagnostics Tracking Service
    dmwappushsvc


    Double click the mentioned services and pick "Disabled" for the startup type:

    You need to restart Windows 10 for changes to take effect.

    I found out some of these settings while I was using the Technical Preview. Kinda annoyed that Microsoft would do these kinds of things without explicit user approval. But then again, free os I guess. Most likely won't be updating. Who knows what other stuff Microsoft included without us knowing... *puts on tinfoil hat*

    You can never know. The registry has more control than the GUI does.
