    Reset all Privacy settings to Default?


    How can I reset some settings to the default without Resetting the whole Windows 10 OS?
    For example, I want to reset all the Privacy Settings back to its original?
    Is there any way to accomplish this without going into Troubleshooting section and Resetting the whole entire OS?

    Thanks

    Since pretty much most privacy items are set to on (ie not private), then you just click those you set to off, back on again.

    If not sure default settings, install Windows 10 in a virtual machine, and then you can note down all default settings.
