New Windows 10 privacy controls: Just a little snooping – or the max


Re: Fix it

After every main update to Win 10, I go grab the latest version from O&O and run it again, just in case!

I have noticed items that were previously disabled, have occasionally switched themselves back on after a patch!

Plus O&O do update the app, in sync with the Windows changes, so something turned off (or on) previously, they might now have changed their recommendation.

I also like that the O&O method, gets rid of Cortana, and Internet searches from the task bar, but still leaves you with a standard functional search box (for local apps/documents etc. Some other tools I've used, just got rid of the search bar completely, which i didn't want.

(It's very rare I ever launch the Start menu in Win 10, most everything I need is either Right click on Start, on my desktop, or a few characters typed into the search bar).
