    Settings App vs. Group Policy Editor Re: Telemetry

    Is it necessary to also change settings in the Group Policy Editor if I have already done so in the settings app. Looking at this link this morning:

    and in the settings app diagnostics is set to basic. Do I also need to get into the Group Policy Editor and set it there as well? TIA.

    Hello phaedruspress,

    You can set it using either Settings or Group Policy. If set via Group Policy, you just won't be able to change it via Settings afterwards.

    Here's more details about it in our tutorial below:

    Thanks for the lightening quick response. On another note I have always "snipped" original messages to only reflect the portion of the reply that reflects an answer to my question instead of quoting the entire response. It has always been my assumption that anyone reading the thread has started from the beginning and has already seen the response in it's entirety. Is that acceptable here?

    Sure that is fine. The quote includes a link to it to make it easy for folks to read the full quoted posted if needed.
