    You can use the slide switch to turn it off. To those who are not aware should turn it off and you are supposed not to share your network in public places.

    Just kind of arrived around here, i should be writting stuff down on a quick list for primetime when it's ready to move since I will be forced to move from win7 as well eventually, but im taking things to a higher level this time and hopefully I can do it with some help ofcourse I don't expect i could do it alone.

    As a new member here and only just started researching Windows 10 and microsoft's stupidity, I would like to see that list :D Honestly I am curious what are the options we must disable out of the box for win10?

    You can start that list from the install rutine. Shut off all switches that suggest sending data to Microsoft. It wont stop everything, but slows down the data transfers going to MS from your machine :D

    It's only a matter of time before it will get compromised but I don't think the average user will suffer for it. Still, I use an iPhone and most people I know use either that or Android so it's going to stay disabled - no wifi sense on those:tea:
