    One of the more ridiculous things MS has ever put out. It's like asking a spy what he's spying on and expecting full disclosure.

    ... and to see what data they grabbed off of you you have to use the store? Okay, I guess they can keep that thing then...
    I never used the store and honestly, putting the software there is just another useless move that bugs users to use that stupid store nobody needs.

    M$ made a tool to show what data being sent to M$ on M$ OS.
    That's very thoughtful of you M$.

    Maybe a simple button saying : "Don't Worry" when pressed, would be more efficient.

    iOS had this for years. Well done playing catchup, MS :p Anyways, if you had telemetry set to full and you opened reliability monitor before the reports were sent, you could inspect their telemetry. At least that's what I observed in the insider builds.

    Nice addition, but hopefully it's something that can be disabled and I'm not prompted to review and submit every time.

    Read first paragraph of article, it says it can be downloaded via M$ store.

    But seriously guys, who outside of M$ can verify the information M$ tool showing us?

    hehe, the way they struggle with their own windows updates they probably can't even verify it themselves. I wouldn't be surprised if half of M$'s offices are zombies inside a botnet...

    There is me stating I would be too lazy to review and submit, while being lazy and skimming the article regarding that part. In my defence I am pretending to work :)

    Thanks

    Or just don't care and use your computer like normal.

    We are being monitored since the 50's, not sure why people are so paranoid when it comes to Windows 10.

    It's probably Microsoft hate, yet people refuse to dump it and switch to Linux.

    Same old argument: "Switch to Linux!"
    If the majority of users could handle Linux, or use it's environment just like Windows, they'd do it. That's... just not the fact. Or did something major change? If so please fill me in, I'd be curious.

    I think they will put themselves in legal trouble if they collect something beyond the data they say they will use. Certainly if it consists of personal data that you did not agree to share.

    Let's phrase it, they have enough money to keep them from trouble.

    As a company MS have gotten into more trouble than nearly any other. The fact they have so much money makes them an easy target for fines. Why go after a small company with no cash?

    As already mentioned, the Linux argument isn't really there. Then again, the people who would not have the patience for Linux are very likely to not care about telemetry so and likely won't want this nagging them all the time.

    This will be handy for gamers who do care about telemetry,and will be better than bloating your PC with additional third party software.
