Microsoft, with the latest anniversary update, has opened the door for we can delete personal data from the Windows 10 start screen, and doing so is as simple as checking an option in the settings.
Windows has abandoned fixed updates, those that came with a fixed version number and changed 50 things at once, to launch a system of progressive updates with Windows 10: the improvements reach users as they are available, without having to wait to a general update. This, however, has not prevented Microsoft from launching a anniversary update that stands out and bring us several things at once to Windows 10.
In Omicrono we have already detailed everything that this update will bring back, but today we want to delve into one of the changes with a tutorial. We are talking about the possibility of hiding personal data on the home screen -or blocking- such as our email or our name; Data that perhaps we do not want to show in situations such as being with the laptop in a coffee machine or at a business meeting.
How to hide data on Windows 10 start screen
With the update these are the steps to take to hide them:
- We access Adjustmentsfrom the Start menu/Start
- Within the section of User account we are looking for a section called Login
- Under the title of Privacy we find the option with a switch
And that’s it, there you can change the option to your liking, without any mystery or complication.
