    Apart from using Win10 Enterprise N LTSC 2019, and applying many tips and tricks which can be found, here, on internet, etc. Is there any more serious way to block telemetry, some blocking script?

    A firewall? Blocking scripts usually block more than the user has bargained for, like onedrive, windows updates, store, etc.

    Ok, but is there any blocking script for Win10 at all? I never even touched things like one drive, store, etc. Maybe only would like to get security updates, but not features and telemetry updates (somewhere I had read that Win10 Enterprise LTSC 2019 already do not download any unnecessary updates except security ones, but can anyone here confirm that?). tnx :cool:

    If I understand this correctly, there is currently no way to completely remove telemetry in windows 10?

    What are common best practices do you guys do after a fresh Windows 10 LTSC/LTSB installation?

    Server 2019 LTSC (Datacenter + Desktop): turn off network adapter, run 'anti-telemetry' scripts; use Group Policy to disable the 'Store', Updates, and other annoyances; tweak Services, then update manually.

    Everything has worked great, thanks to all the wizards and veteran contributors here on MDL!

    Hi,
    Great advice. Thanks!
    Can you however elaborate more on the following:
    - run 'anti-telemetry' scripts - what are those scripts? where to get them from?
    - use Group Policy to disable the 'Store', Updates, and other annoyances - what exact GPOs?
    - tweak Services - what services to disable, what to enable, etc?

    install_win_tweak.exe is an advanced tool for modifying windows install & should not be used if you don't know what you are doing.

    There are many tools posted in 1st post but I suggest just using the group policy tweaks to disable standard telemetry options(& in settings control panel app too for things like app experience etc turn them off).All these extra tweaks come with the risk of breaking something on your system & if you are that concerned about win 10 telemetry then better use ltsc2019(no apps,no store,no feature updates,only security updates) or enterprise version which still has better telemetry/privacy controls compared to pro version.
