I use this 3 free programs:

MSMG Toolkit

This is a good start to let you remove all unwanted (CR)Apps and many other parts, from your install.wim image indexes including some related to telemetry MSMG Toolkit: https://msmgtoolkit.in/

O&O ShutUp10

After install you can also use O&O ShutUp10: https://www.oo-software.com/en/shutup10

Firewall App Blocker

And finally you can use Firewall App Blocker (Fab) v1.6, by means of Whitelist all inbond and outbond connections are blocked, and only the programs you select will be able to connect to Internet: https://www.sordum.org/8125/firewall-app-blocker-fab-v1-6/

How come I didn’t know about this guide? It would possibly make Win 10 bearable for me in certain situations. I might try it when I reinstall it again some day.

BTW, is there a way to reduce the Windows 10 footprint on hard disk? Currently it is ten times bigger than my Windows 2000 VM...

Just like to inform interested persons of a real privacy dashboard that also removes some built in windows apps. A built in blocklist and a Microsoft shut up blocker as well. It is available in the following link and it is the best thing I've found especially for this years internet issues I actually got some stability issues resolved by setting it up just after fresh install of windows 10. It also works on other versions as well. WPD Windows Privacy Dashboard

i personally do not like to use third party apps to change settings, unless there is no other choice or practical workaround. that being said, i was wondering if anyone knows what would be the most optimal settings for telemetry on windows 10. what i mean by this is, i only want the crucial factors that microsoft would need to provide updates, etc. from what i researched, windows 10 enterprise is the only one that's mentioned for allowing the "0" enabled setting in group policy for allowtelemetry setting, however, the connected user experience and telemetry service in services.msc must be in the default setting, enabled / manual? for it work properly? but the same also would need to be done for professional and home editions for example, if using the "1" setting in group policy for allowtelemetry. the only other setting i can think of that also needs to be set is required diagnostic data, found in settings - privacy - diagnostics & feedback. however, from what i also looked at, there is something else related to the telemetry from taskmanager, called "Microsoft Compatibility Appraiser", which can somehow be disabled.   

if someone knows what would be the best settings or a recommendation for all this, that would be nice. for me, the datacollection and privacy is one thing, but another is knowing how much there'd be slowdown and from what angles. i can understand the frustration from people alike, who share the same concern, because not knowing the exact details of whats happening from all these windows 10 things is a problem.
