Microsoft Windows 10 Privacy Settings

A little privacy please.
Panzer woke up from his afternoon nap to all kinds of crying and hissing and booing. Following all the noise, took our brave kitty boy to the New York Times site.

According to a post by J. D. Biersdorfer, Microsoft's new Windows 10 has taken a lot of your privacy away. It will be tracking your keystrokes on your computer keyboard, keeping track of your Contacts list, and keeping track of where your computer is. Why? Remember that little (actually huge) Privacy Terms document you agreed to when you installed Windows 10? Well, you gave Microsoft permission to do all that and more, because the privacy defaults allow this. To opt out now, you'll have to change all of your privacy settings.

Panzer says, "If you don't care that Microsoft knows everything you type in your emails, your work documents, and your private journal, don't change your privacy settings."
