WPD is a tool for exploring, understanding and tweaking Windows 10 privacy settings. We've seen many of these, you have too, but the program does have some unusual extras which help it stand out from the crowd.

The interface is up-to-date, for instance. The developer hasn't got it right in every area, but the program does actually look like it was written for Windows 10.

Hitting Privacy allows enabling or disabling more than 30 Group Policy, Windows services or scheduled tasks. Many of these are described "briefly", to put it politely - "UsbCeip", "dmwappushservice", "Sqm-Tasks" - but there's often helpful text which explains what the service does, and in some cases what might happen if it's disabled.

By default the program can use Windows Firewall rules to block access to specific telemetry-related IP addresses. It can also copy the IP addresses to the clipboard, allowing you to use them in the HOSTS file or anywhere else.

A bonus Uninstall option allows uninstalling some or all standard Windows apps from your PC. This generally isn't a good idea and can have unexpected effects, so only try this if you're sure it's necessary and you're confident you can recover if something goes wrong.

Hmm, not so much differents about sooo many kind of tweakers in internet. Those like many tweaker in internet could of course made pretty quickly in setting/privacy....

But, everyone do whatever they want or believe :) I have done my own custom regtweaks and other tweaks that it take weeks to have it in correctly complete, now i have to just do clean install, and click/ some patch/bat/reg etc... and thats it. Of course i have clone for that. So i do prefer manually tweaking, altrought it's hard way, but i have live in hard way and so i do not fall pretty easily, hahaha!

The first thing for me is to eliminate the store apps. Who needs it, I never liked the apps. Much less that windows do it seem to android cell phone system. Telemetry is a blow to the shell. But the worst of all is that it feels laggi because of all that. Thanks the program will help me to improve my privacy.
Absolute Top Performance is a key attribute to any working system as such also with this O/S and for many of us we have no choice but to agree with the statement "Telemetry is a blow to the shell".

I come to expect that with every release of windows a complete re-modification routine of adjustments also is necessary to realize your select machine's full energy capacity is allowed to operate with peak uninterrupted efficiency.

That means uninhibited by those additions which work to throttled it down and choke off it's potential. Windows will always be a sound framework only O/S IMHO and I mean that in a positive light. It is up to the operator to add or detach elements to better prepare it for the long term.
