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.

Tip: Check out our overview of Windows 10 Privacy programs and my Windows 10 Privacy book.

O&O ShutUp10 version 1.6.1391

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:

  • Disable advertisement in File Explorer and in OneDrive.
  • Disable the automatic download of manufacturer applications and icons for devices.
  • Deactivation of user-friendliness program (I'm not sure which setting in the program this refers to though)

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.

Closing Words

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.

Now You: how do you handle Windows 10 privacy?

    All is better than the current ClipChamp that it’s the most useless garbage ever done. Thanks for the article by the way.

      Horrible company that bought out this ClipChamp trash. Microsoft no longer puts any effort into developing software; instead, they only want to use their subpar web services to con you out of more money.

    No disrespect, but educators have known about MS Photos and the ability to work with videos for four years; may want to take a look at the MS Educators Blog:


    The following link is part of the Blog:


    Here to old fashion legacy stuff: I still use Movie Maker, which runs fine on Windows 10, and PhotoStory, which has enabled me to make some awesome slideshows.

    Still using question marks without asking a question. That’s not professional.

    “To edit it, you need to click on ‘edit & create’ from the top. “Do you mean with Windows 10 in photo’s “Video trim”?

    – Video Editor:

    Both are free and are not “crippleware” like most “free” offerings for Windows.

    Shaun, it really backfires to draw people’s eyes to something irrelevant. Links should have good information scent: that is, they must clearly explain where they will take users. Additionally, poor link labels hurt your search-engine ranking.

    Don’t force users to read the text surrounding a link to determine where it leads. This is both time consuming and frustrating.
