How To Prevent Windows 10 From Tracking App Launches

Windows 10 app developers and advertising networks can use unique advertising ID generated by Windows to provide more relevant advertising in apps. When the advertising ID is enabled, apps can access and use it in much the same way that websites can access and use a unique identifier stored in a cookie. Thus, app developers (and the advertising networks they work with) can use your advertising ID to provide more relevant advertising and other personalized experiences across their apps.

This tutorial will show you how to turn off app launch tracking to improve Start and search results for your account in Windows 10.


Turn Off App Launch Tracking in Settings

1. Press Windows + I keys to open Settings app.

2. Click on Privacy.



3. From the General tab, on the right side, in the right panel click on the slider for Let Windows track app launches to improve Start and search results option to turn off this feature.



That’s all!
