Microsoft Upgrades Windows 10 Powers Of Control

It looks as though Microsoft has done a U turn on Windows 10 background telemetry. The company says it is releasing updates later this year that will give you full control over all background telemetry and data tracking. Thanks to Executioner for the link.

Contacting me again a Microsoft spokesperson explained the company now wanted to speak about the issue. In short: Microsoft is taking action. It has decided to release updates "later this year" which will enable users to fully control all background telemetry and data tracking and, if desired, disable it completely. Microsoft also asked me to stress that disabling these background operations is something it would "strongly recommend against".
