TOP 3 "Windows 10" Tips of 2019

1. Stop Microsoft from collecting your data!

Type "services" in the Start menu search bar then, disable 'Diagnostics Tracking Service' & 'dmwappushsvc' = No more "data" will be collected without you knowing it. This is obviously for the security minded among you.

2. Get the useful "Icons" back on the desktop.

Click the Start Menu, go to Settings, then click Personalization, then Themes, then Desktop Icon Settings & select the icons you need back onto the desktop where some people think they obviously belong. If you are one of those people then this tip is for you.
 
3. Keep "Them" from listening to your conversations and watching you with your camera!

It sounds like science fiction but hackers love to listen to you and record video from your camera. This can obviously be used against you later and thousands of people have learned this the hard way. Don't be one of "those people". Take your privacy seriously with this tip. Define which apps can access the camera & mic by clicking the Start Menu, then Settings, then click Privacy and turn off permission for the applications you do not want to access the microphone and camera. There are many other settings to disable as well like "Your Location" which you may want off.
