    Browsers affected by Optional diagnostic data


    The option "Optional diagnostic data" will send info about websites you browse, according to Settings. But doesn't specify which browsers are that. If that'll be only Edge, or any URL from any browser, say Firefox, Chrome, Opera, etc. etc. Any ideas on this?

    According to this website, it will only affect Microsoft browsers: "Aggregate information about browsing history in Microsoft browsers is used to tune Bing’s search algorithms to provide more effective search results."

    I do not, but it is required by Windows Insider settings. Still, I partially block MS telemetry.

    By the way, you can completely disable the diagnostic data in Edge via policy, but only on 7.
    Code:
    reg add "HKLM\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Edge" /v "DiagnosticData" /t REG_DWORD /d "0" /f
    You need to disable Windows Diagnostic Data in 10, since it takes precedence.
    Code:
    reg add "HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\DataCollection" /v "AllowTelemetry" /t REG_DWORD /d "0" /f
    reg add "HKLM\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\DataCollection" /v "AllowDeviceNameInTelemetry" /t REG_DWORD /d "0" /f
    reg add "HKLM\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\DataCollection" /v "MaxTelemetryAllowed" /t REG_DWORD /d "0" /f
    reg add "HKLM\Software\Wow6432Node\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\DataCollection" /v "AllowTelemetry" /t REG_DWORD /d "0" /f
