Windows 10 is an operating system that exists both on your PC and in Microsoft’s cloud — which means that a lot of your information ends up being stored and analyzed in the cloud. To protect your privacy and data, you can deny Microsoft access to much of what you view and create.

First, go to Settings and click on Privacy. There, you’ll find no less than 13 screens. Read everything carefully and disable anything that bothers you.

Next, consider deactivating Cortana. Although this voice-driven assistant is one of the niftiest features in the OS, it is a highly invasive product that tracks and records every word you type or say out loud.

Third, don’t allow Microsoft to personalize ads for you. To reduce Microsoft gathering information for advertisers to bombard you with ‘messages,’ go to this Microsoft webpage  set “Personalized ads in this browser” and “Personalized ads wherever I use my Microsoft account” to off.
