Windows 10 Insider Preview: This Is a Big One

  • Microsoft Edge Jump List

Currently, your options are to either endure the broken set-up until Microsoft fixes the issue, or uninstall the update.

Microsoft has launched an online dashboard which allows users to see and control their activity data. Over time, Microsoft says it will add more tools that give users visibility and control over their collected data. This included location data, browser and search history, keyboard inputs, and more - and all of this data was automatically sent to Microsoft without the user being made clearly aware.

Microsoft is also planning to introduce a new privacy setup screen which will help guide users through tracking choices and fewer "diagnostic" data collections in any upcoming software releases. In the previous versions Microsoft used to collect data on up to three levels, but with the new update it will be lowered down to only two levels: basic and full. The company is also set to introduce a new set up experience which replaces previous Express Settings.

Finally, this update brings its share of corrections, fixing brightness settings issues, improving Coraina pop-ups in Edge, and fixing crashes when browsing folders on the OneDrive cloud storage facility.

But what's a bit unexpected, however, is that pausing updates will only be available on Windows 10 Professional, Education, and Enterprise, so if you're running Windows 10 Home, you won't be getting this option when the Creators Update goes live.

Let us know what you think of Microsoft's privacy changes in the comments.

Among the updates coming to Microsoft's Edge browser, for example, are additional tools to make it easier to keep track of and manage multiple tabs, including a new visual preview panel that lets users scroll through all their open tabs without having to leave the one that's now on the screen (see picture, above).
