I'm very new to windows 10 (just installed a couple days ago) and I placed my photos in pictures folder for use on the desktop, etc. Today I'm getting messages about them being placed into several albums and on the cloud. I really don't want this.
I didn't sign up for MS accounts with my computer accounts (although have emails - not using anything except Firefox to go to check). It even said my photos were on the cloud - which I really don't want and to give them my account information or sign up for a MS account.
I'm trying to keep as much of my privacy as possible.
How do I undo this? If it can't be done, if I delete all my photos from the computer, will that help?
Any more suggestions to keep as private as possible I'd appreciate (cortana is disabled, sending MS info about writing and stop getting to know me done, not sure what else)? I'm not using calendar, or anything but FF and office 2010 (which it's harrassing me to update and I don't wish to) and placed my photos into pictures, windows defender, etc. Do I have to go into every account to switch off things or just doing it in admin or one of the standard accounts (2 standard accounts) will work?
I heard there may be an app that will stop the privacy violations - is this true and where can I find it? Would it need downloading to every account or only the admin account?
Also, Olde timer's temporary file cleaner - is it compatible with windows 10 (I can't find a windows 10 download for it)?
Also, everytime I plug in my kindle to it for downloading library books (I read a lot and have several coming in) says there's a problem with it and wants to fix it? Should I believe it?
