    Bad news, some stuff from Saturday showed up on their. I cleared them, it was Firefox, hwmonitor, BitDefender, and a handful on Microsoft stuff. I used the computer a fair bit on Saturday, so it doesn't look like it is everything logged. Saturday was when I group policy disabled reporting information.

    Oddly, it never logged anything for Friday. I will keep an eye on it to see whether Friday ever shows up and if it keeps logging information. It should not be doing any of this...

    Hopefully that's the last bit of it.

    One Microsoft Word instance from Saturday showed up. I know Office stuff sometimes shows up despite the setting being off from my old laptop and from my desktop. I will keep an eye on it.

    A OneDrive usage showed up for Monday the 15th, but that makes sense. OneDrive posts there even when activity history is completely disabled.

    Nothing else has been logged, so so far so good.

    My desktop used to post a OneDrive usage instance for each and every time I started up (and pretty much nothing else logged).

    So glad I have my Win 10 desktop locked down tighter than a politician's wallet.

    I have been tracking it daily. Office applications still show up and OneDrive shows up but nothing else.

    I am presuming that those apps are tracked independent of Windows' settings.

    So far so good. Just need to find those settings now.

    Recently, this account.microsoft.com thing has been showing up. I don't know if it is supposed to be a record of me logging into my computer or me logging into their website to affirm that nothing unexpected is on their.

    (This laptop is the only computer linked to my Microsoft account that I am actively using, my computer at work just has a local account)
