Microsoft will be vamping up more privacy settings in an effort to appease customers who weren't happy with the last major update.

Specs: AMD RYZEN 7 1800X, Samsung SM961 M.2, 64 GB Corsair DDR4 memory (CMD32GX4M2B3000C15), MSI X370 Gaming Pro motherboard

    I bet they won't let me turn it off completely, so I will not be happy.

    Problem with Microsoft is everything invasive is opt out, not opt in. Adding the ability to manually turn off things doesn't remove the fact that they're turned on by default.

    I agree, but appears to be a small step in the right direction...

    i7-5930K @ 4.40GHz ~ Corsair H100i ~ 16GB G.Skill RipJaws 4 @ 2400MHz
    Samsung 960 EVO w/Win10 Pro ~ Samsung 840 Pro ~ Samsung 840
