You Can Know What Diagnostic Data Windows 10 Uploads To Microsoft Servers

Microsoft has released the Windows 10 Preview Build 17083 for insiders in the fast ring. Among new additions, changes, and bug fixes, the latest test build includes a separate Settings page for managing fonts in Windows 10. This goes in line with Redmond’s recent decision of bringing Fonts to Microsoft Store.

The Quiet Hours feature has been renamed to Focus Assist and users can right-click the Action Center button to change Focus Assist modes. The app settings pages for UWP apps have been updated to show their version numbers for easier reference.

But what has caught the attention of many Windows 10 users is the fact that Microsoft is now more open about what diagnostic data is collected from the users’ PCs.

In the Insider build 17083, when you visit Settings > Privacy > Diagnostics & feedback, you can enable the Diagnostic Data Viewer app via a toggle button. The app displays the information in the form of diagnostic events that your PC sends to Microsoft servers in the name of improving your Windows experience and fixing broken things.

The diagnostic viewer app also includes a search bar to find specific diagnostic events. It provides filters to separate the diagnostic events by categories such as browsing history, product and service performance, etc.

Microsoft has also added an option to provide feedback about the Diagnostic data viewer app. Moreover, a standard user can also change the diagnostic data levels set by an administrator. A notification is delivered when another user or the admin changes the level.
