      Turn off optional diagnostic data
      Press the Windows key + I to open the Settings app, then go to Privacy & security, followed by Diagnostics & feedback.
      Under the Diagnostic data section, make sure the Send optional diagnostic data is switched off.
      Now go back to Privacy & Security and choose the Activity history option.
      Uncheck the box for Store my activity history on this device, then go to Speech and click on Stop contributing my voice clips.
      Now go under the General panel and switch off all the options that collect user data and send it to Microsoft.
      Following the procedures outlined above, you will now send less data to Microsoft, so exposing yourself to less risk. Telemetry will not be fully eliminated as a result of this method, but it will be significantly reduced.
