    WOW! I did not even realize this was an actual setting. I went into Settings on my PC and cleared them immediately, then signed out and unticked all the check marks so that they wouldn't track my history. . That is an invasion of privacy, if you ask me!!!

    Can you be a little more specific, please. What Win 10 history of what, and how are you doing this? Thanks.

    Also, what version of Windows are you running?

    And please fill in you system specs as best you can. Just "Windows 10" doesn't tell us much. Thanks.

    Ok, I understand. Has filled in the spec as best as I can. wins version should be 1803. What I have done: went to privacy setting and unticked activity history's box, the one to do with windows collect my history (not including the sync cause it never was on), I hided my activity from timeline, I cleared activity history, and i went to my account on the net and deleted the history of "apps". thats about it. thanks!!

    Ok, I just went and looked at those options.

    Oh, thanks for filling in specs!

    You did all that, and something from just June 30th is showing? Without posting anything personal, can you post a pic of what you are seeing and where it is?

    ok, hope this clarify stuff a little bit. The blue area is for my privacy. Hope you can help me. Thanks!! and I also want to add that we really need to voice our opinion to MS cause slowly they are introducing this "Beast" system onto our society and our privacy will soon be vaporized, wouldn't you guys agreed??

    edit: and one more thing to clarify, although the thumbnails are showing, but they are unresponsive to command, I mean, open is grey out, remove and delete all 30th's history gives no respond...
