Guide To Change Diagnostic And Usage Data Settings in Windows 10


You will be aware of Diagnostic Data Viewer. Let me describe the functionality of Diagnostic Data Viewer. It collects information about your device and sends it to Microsoft to troubleshoot issues and improve the performance and help in resolving bugs.


In the Diagnostic Data Viewer, you can actually see the data that Microsoft collects from Windows and Office in real-time, depending on the privacy choices you’ve made in the settings.

What you might want to change…

The Application contain two options that include Basic and Full. The “Basic” option only contains information about your device and the “Full” option contains all the information about your system.


When you are using Basic, Microsoft only collects the data required in order to help keep your device up to date and secure. You’ll be able to see that data in the viewer.

If you have chosen Full, Microsoft collects diagnostic data to improve Microsoft products and services to help everyone (not just you). You’ll be able to see that data in the viewer as well.

You may or may not want Microsoft to collect more data than needed to just help keep your device safe and secure. You may not even know whether you have authorized Microsoft to collect data under the Basic or Full setting.
