DISABLING TELEMETRY IN WINDOWS 10 & ANNOYING SERVICES/FEATURES/APPS

Hi guys, We are going to use a 3rd party and freeware tool called WPD to apply some tweaks I have in my systems. These are the steps to follow:

1.- Download WPD at: https://wpd.app

2.- Before apply WPD tweaks, go to Settings in Windows Start button:


   

3.- Then select Privacy:

   

4.- Go to Privacy => Background Apps, and check Let apps run in the background:

   

5.- For those who still will use Camera and Microphone with Windows 10, then go to Privacy => Camera and check Allow apps to access Your camera is enabled, and the same with Privacy => Microphone.

6.- Then open WPD.exe tool, and go to Privacy:

   

And disable ALL the settings except these two ones:

   

7.- Then click over the shield icon on the left and click over the Extra icon (until get green tick), to disable Windows extra features. We keep untouched Spy and Update, because changing these settings will broke Windows Update services:

   

That's all folks!

P.S.: soon I will create a new post with my PrivateWin10 tool tweaks, stay tuned! Smile

Hi guys! with the new W10 1903 version there is also a new WPD build, with these circumstances, there is a new tweak We should take into account:
 
   
This setting have to be enabled, if We disable it will loose W10 Action Center vertical bar and notifications.
