The most recent version of the privacy tool for Windows 10 O&O ShutUp10 is fully compatible with Microsoft's Windows 10 Fall Creators Update that the company will release later today.
It is a good idea usually to verify that preferences, installed applications and programs, and files, were not changed or removed during updates, and especially feature updates.
While you can go through the list of privacy options manually to find obvious changes, you may use a privacy tool instead which simplifies this for you.
O&O ShutUp10 version 1.6.1391 is compatible with the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update. This means among other things that preferences have been checked to make sure that they work with the update, and also that preferences for new features of the Windows 10 operating system were added as well.
The new version of ShutUp10 supports the following three new settings:
Those are not the only changes however in the new version of the application. If you have used the application before, you may notice the changes that the developers made to the interface.
The resizing issues that some users experienced in earlier versions of the application are fixed in the new version. The program saves the window position, and size changes don't cause issues with the main window anymore.
New grouping options are probably the most interesting addition to the interface. You can list all settings in a long list by disabling categories, or group them by activation status, name, category, or recommendation. Lastly, a couple of issues have been fixed on top of all that.
O&O ShutUp 10 is simple to use. It prompts you to create a System Restore point before you make any changes to the system, and supports the importing and exporting of configurations so that you may apply configurations on the same or other computer systems with minimal effort after the initial setting up phase.
It will also detect the actual configuration when you run it, and even prompts you if it notices that the configuration changed in the meantime.
O&O ShutUp 10 is a handy program that you may run after upgrading Windows 10 machines to the Fall Creators Update to make sure privacy related settings were not changed, and to adjust the new settings.
