Windows 10 naturally shares a lot of telemetry information with Microsoft. Mostly, telemetry information is about how well (or poorly) your PC operates, along with a smattering of information about how you use it.

But the default setting sends a maximum amount of information to Redmond, including detailed crash reports that could include confidential information. You can override these default settings and choose not to share that information.
