I’m about to let you in on a little secret. You’re about to become one of the Windows intelligentsia. Ready?

You know about the Start menu in Windows 10. (Yes, it’s back, thank goodness.) But did you know about the secret Start menu?

If you right-click the Start button, you get this: Direct access to some of the most useful parts of Windows — like Control Panel, File Explorer, Search, and Task Manager. No more swiping, tapping, and searching for the stuff you really need.

If you’ve got a touchscreen device, you can get the same effect by simply touching the Start Menu icon and holding your finger on it for a full second, then releasing it.

By the way, Windows key+X is the keystroke for that.

Windows Key-X. That’s about as secret as it gets!

Would You Pay Micro-soft to spy on you? Windows 10 is an update that is being used to spy on you through malware. It is placed on your computer through the update and then leaves you helpless against spying through keystrokes, your camera and websites you visit.

Join Pete and Dr. Katherine Albrecht to learn why you should be very concerned about Micro-Softs new software. Do not upgrade to Windows10 until you listen to this important message!

We will access, disclose and preserve personal data, including your content (such as the content of your emails, other private communications or files in private folders), when we have a good faith belief that doing so is necessary to.
 
 
If that sentence sent shudders down your spine, don’t worry. As invasive as it is, Microsoft does allow Windows 10 users to opt out of all of the features that might be considered invasions of privacy. Of course, users are opted in by default, which is more than a little disconcerting, but let’s focus on the solution.
 
Rock Paper Shotgun has broken things down into four main bullet points that will guide you through regaining control of your personal data.
 
 
First, you’ll want to open Settings and click on Privacy. There, you’ll find 13 different screens — yes, 13 — to go through, and you’ll want to disable anything that seems worrying. The blog notes that most of the important settings can be found on the General tab, though other tabs are important as well. For example, you’ll definitely want to adjust what types of data each app on your system can access.
 
Next, users should consider dumping Cortana. Yes, the voice-driven assistant is easily one of the best new features in Windows 10, but it also plays fast and loose with your data. As a result, many users will find that the benefits do not outweigh the risks.
 
For the third task, you’ll have to venture outside the confines of your PC and hit the web. Perhaps this is a good opportunity to check out Microsoft’s nifty new Edge browser. In it, click on this link and set both “Personalised ads in this browser” and “Personalised ads wherever I use my Microsoft account” to off. This will disable Microsoft’s Google-style ad tracking features.
 
The last tip is one that most users will likely forgo, as it is a bit excessive. Rock Paper Shotgun recommends removing your Microsoft account from Windows 10 completely and using a newly made local account instead. This way, Microsoft doesn’t grab hold of all your data to sync it across machines. To us that’s a great and useful feature, but if you want to kill it just follow the link below in our source section for complete instructions and plenty more details."

Free up space in Windows 10 by removing unwanted core apps
 
Uninstalling apps is a pretty straightforward process, you can do this through the Start menu, but removing core applications isn’t as easy. The uninstall option is not available, meaning you’re stuck with a bunch of apps you don’t want. You can however, remove these using PowerShell.

Windows 10 privacy paranoia leads to ban from private pirate torrent trackers

Fears surrounding Windows 10's online connectivity and data collection are continuing to run rampant. The latest fallout is something that Microsoft probably won't be too upset about: some private BitTorrent trackers that trade entirely in pirated media appear to have banned the use of Microsoft's operating system.

According to a post on Reddit, the iTS tracker has banned the use of Windows 10. The reason? "Amongst other things Windows 10 sends the contents of your local disks directly to one of their servers."

Windows 10

Why does Microsoft have a right to ALL text you type, the first 35 megabytes of video from a web cam every time it is turned on, and everything that gets picked up by the microphone?

If you have not woken up yet, here is what now happens:
All text typed on the keyboard is stored in temporary files, and sent (once per 30 mins) to:

oca.telemetry.microsoft.com.nsatc.net
pre.footprintpredict.com
reports.wes.df.telemetry.microsoft.com

(This will allow Microsoft and the greater Jewish community to have a way to steal every joke, every poem, every intellectual endeavor you ever create and have it copyrighted before you even stop typing).
Of course, they'll also have your innermost thoughts, should you have typed them. Naturally, later they can (and will!) use it against you - even if hey have to twist it some.

Telemetry is sent once per 5 minutes, to:
vortex.data.microsoft.com
vortex-win.data.microsoft.com
telecommand.telemetry.microsoft.com
telecommand.telemetry.microsoft.com.nsatc.net
oca.telemetry.microsoft.com
oca.telemetry.microsoft.com.nsatc.net
sqm.telemetry.microsoft.com
sqm.telemetry.microsoft.com.nsatc.net

This allows them to track you very accurately.

Typing the name of any popular movie into your local file search starts a telemetry process that indexes all media files on your computer and transmits them to:

df.telemetry.microsoft.com
reports.wes.df.telemetry.microsoft.com
cs1.wpc.v0cdn.net
vortex-sandbox.data.microsoft.com
pre.footprintpredict.com

This allows them to index any "unauthorized" content, and build a dossier on you that can be used in conjunction with their tracking data to throw almost anyone in jail when needed.

When a webcam is first enabled, ~35mb of data gets immediately transmitted to:
oca.telemetry.microsoft.com
oca.telemetry.microsoft.com.nsatc.net
vortex-sandbox.data.microsoft.com
i1.services.social.microsoft.com
i1.services.social.microsoft.com.nsatc.net

This allows them to get a good layout of your home and surroundings, and a good look at YOU PERSONALLY so they know exactly who to go get and how to stage the attack when something you typed pissed them off.

Everything that is said into an enabled microphone is immediately transmitted to:

oca.telemetry.microsoft.com
oca.telemetry.microsoft.com.nsatc.net
vortex-sandbox.data.microsoft.com
pre.footprintpredict.com
i1.services.social.microsoft.com
i1.services.social.microsoft.com.nsatc.net
telemetry.appex.bing.net
telemetry.urs.microsoft.com
cs1.wpc.v0cdn.net
statsfe1.ws.microsoft.com

So even if you do not type anything, just talking in the room is gonna get you nailed, and if you say anything they don't like they will already have had a good look at you personally with your web cam, plus your surroundings, plus your exact location with that telemetry data, so they can PEG YOU GOOD.

Yeah, I guess HILLARY'S E-MAILS PROVED THE NSA AS A SOURCE IS NOT GOOD ENOUGH, because using them can land you in jail. THE NEW CONSULTEE IS MICROSOFT, why use an old outdated battleship like the NSA when that can backfire?

If this weren't bad enough, this behavior still happens when Cortana (microsoft's version of SIRI) is not installed is SO IT IS NOT ANY HELPFUL ASSISTANT DOING THIS, IT IS A DATA AND PRIVACY RAPE PURE AND SIMPLE.
