I don’t know about you guys, but if I had to pick one Windows 10 feature I dig the most, it’d undoubtedly be Cortana. The super-witty digital personal assistant lets you manage your daily schedule, find your important files, and do a heck of a lot more. But to work this magic, Cortana collects quite a lot of personal information about you, ranging from contacts to typing history to speech patterns. And while that’s necessary for Cortana to work the way she does, it can be a little bothersome from the privacy standpoint.

Fret not, as you can easily get rid of all the information collection by Cortana in Windows 10. And all it takes is a few clicks. Getting impatient already? To get the lowdown on how you can delete information collected by Cortana in Windows 10, move to the other end of the break.
