Disable Tailored Experiences in Windows 10

The Tailored experiences privacy setting is available in Windows 10 starting in build 15019. It is enabled by default. When it is enabled, Microsoft will use diagnostic data to provide personalized recommendations, tips and offers to tailor Windows for the user's needs, and make it work better for them. If you are not happy with the default settings, you can disable it, as explained below.

During the ongoing development of Windows 10, Microsoft introduced new privacy options in the OS. The company has tried to make the privacy policy more transparent for the end user and explicitly show which data is being collected. When signing in to a new user account or installing the OS, you can quickly revise the important privacy settings such as ads, diagnostics, location, and tailored experiences. A special “learn more” section explains how the collected location, speech recognition, diagnostics, tailored experiences, and ad data will be used.
