Software Details

You do not need to install anything when you use ShutUp10. You simply save the file in the desired destination and you just launch it. As the name implies, the freeware app is just compatible with Windows 10. Also, you need Microsoft .NET Framework and you have to use the program with full administrator privilege.

After you launch the application, you see a very simple GUI. It lists around 50 items you can turn on and off. All options are grouped based on categories like privacy, security, user behavior, Windows Update, and location services.

You can create a system restore point, just in case something goes bad and you have to undo changes to get back to the system as it was before. There is even an option to return to factory settings.

Most users will simply apply all the recommended settings.

When you do not know what an option does, you can click on it to reveal extra details. This is very useful for those that do not have advanced computer knowledge.

On the whole, ShutUp10 is a very fast way to improve Windows 10 operation so that you control security and privacy settings.
