I log in to Win10 with a local account and disable anything that looks like it could leak private information. It's pretty up front though. You're not having to dive into the registry to make these changes.
I'll probably uninstall Solitaire just because I never play it.
When an OS vendor has network "cloud" syncing services then there is going to be some tracking involved just to get it to work. That's the nature of it.
Sometimes I think about setting up a dual boot Linux system but last time I tried it still couldn't use the Sound Blaster Z card I have. (It's a long story as to why I still have a dedicated sound card.)
