Windows 10 Will Now Show You Data It's Sending Back To Microsoft

Microsoft introduces new privacy tools ahead of Data Privacy Day - Windows Experience BlogWindows Experience Blog Microsoft To Tell You What They Are Doing With 'Diagnostic Data'

At the very least, Microsoft is clearly trying to be more upfront with users regarding exactly how and why it collects the data from us, and what it's doing with that information.

That description seems to suggest that end users will be able to override telemetry settings made by administrators in a coming Windows 10 release. The application, which needs to be enabled from the Settings menu in Windows 10 build 17083 or installed from the Windows Store, is created to show "the diagnostic data your device is sending to Microsoft".

Microsoft plans to introduce two new options in the forthcoming version of Windows 10: Diagnostic Data Viewer and Delete diagnostic data. Now, new tools are on the way to allow you to view the data Microsoft collects from the Windows 10 computers. The diagnostic data presented in the menu includes Common Data, Product and Service Usage and Performance Data, and Device Connectivity and Configuration, among others.

Windows 10 Build 17083 is today rolling out to the Windows Insiders on the Fast Ring and for those who opted in to Skip Ahead.

Members of the Windows Insider Program will have access to the Windows Diagnostic Data Viewer app in a new build scheduled to be delivered later today.

Fonts such as Arial Nova is already available for download in the Microsoft Store, and the Fonts panel in the Settings app has been updated to show font capabilities, size, colours and other information. In the Diagnostic Data Viewer app, you can view your diagnostics events, search your diagnostic events, filter your diagnostic event categories, and more.

"Our commitment is to be fully transparent on the diagnostic data collected from your Windows devices, how it is used, and to provide you with increased control over that data", said Rogers.

Software Setup and Inventory such as installed applications and install history, device update information. The document describes the "Full" telemetry data collection option in Windows 10. The second functionality, Delete diagnostic data, will apparently allow users to delete the data before the system send it to Microsoft.

The info that appears on this page represents the most relevant personal data that we save with your Microsoft account to help make your experience with our products and services more personalized, useful, and fun.

For customers running Windows 10 Enterprise edition, a separate setting, available via Group Policy, reduces telemetry collection to a bare minimum but also disables Windows Update.
