Take control of your privacy in Windows 8.1. While we are discussing privacy and security controls in Windows 10, I am certain that many of you, like me, are waiting to upgrade, and are trudging along with our finally usable versions of Windows 7 or 8.1. Go to Settings in the Charm bar, and select Change PC Settings, Privacy, in order to make certain that you aren't making data available that you want to keep secure. It isn't a panacea; but, it is a start. Be careful out there.
