    It's hard to address your concerns about "privacy" because this is largely subjective terms that means different things to different folks.

    To me, "privacy" means protecting my personal information -- with nobody, and nothing, recording keystrokes, audio or video -- without my express permission for each and every single instance.

    To me, if that stuff is being recorded, then I am being "spied upon" -- and hiding behind tems like "telemetry" does not change that.

    So, if you want "privacy", you can disabled any microphones, put tape over any cameras, and use utilities to disable as much "telemetry" as possible. And remember, if Cortana is running, then (by definition), Cortana is also LISTENING.

    Some folks would say -- then don't use Win10 -- but that would also mean don't use a smartphone (as its location is being tracked 24/7), don't stream media over any Internet based service, don't drive any car with an Infotainment system, don't text folks, don't use Social Media, ... etc.

    Unless you are completely "off the grid", you really have no guarantee of absolute "privacy" -- so the choice, and trade-offs, are up to you.
    My mother has windows 10 and she put a Band-Aid on the camera... I'm not paranoid like that lol. but yeah I want to make sure that thing like keystrokes aren't being saved if for some reason Microsoft wants to know how fast I type... (That seriously does sound like a real thing tho)

    Good choice. Band-Aids are optional, part# MSBA-16299.248. :)
