Windows 10 defaults to collecting vast amounts of your data (anonymously). Unless you've deliberately told it otherwise, your machine will be doing this now. This month's HowTo blog explains how to locate Windows 10's privacy settings and change this if you prefer that it didn't.

Our HowTo this month will demonstrate some steps you can take to try and free up some space.
