Disable Windows Telemetry via GPO

Windows Telemetry does "stuff." I don't want it to do that "stuff." In certain cases, it hogs resources sometimes it becomes out of control.

  • -new GPO.
  • -name: c-disable-telemetry
  • -settings: COMPUTER-CONFIGURATION > POLICIES > ADMINISTRATIVE-TEMPLATES > WINDOWS-COMPONENTS > DATA-COLLECTION-AND-PREVIEW-BUILDS
  • -select ALLOW-TELEMETRY
  • -set: ENABLED:0 (only works on Windows Enterprise).

But wait, there's more:

  • -settings: COMPUTER-CONFIGURATION > POLICIES > ADMINISTRATIVE-TEMPLATES > SYSTEM > INTERNET-COMMUNICATION-MANAGEMENT > INTERNET-COMMUNICATION-SETTINGS
  • -select TURN-OFF-WINDOWS-CUSTOMER-EXPERIENCE-IMPROVEMENT-PROGRAM
  • -set: ENABLED.

Save the GPO but don't forget to turn off User-Configuration: DETAILS > USER-CONFIGURATION-SETTINGS-DISABLED.

That's it! Link to all OU's necessary.
