This post shows students and new users steps to turn On or Off tailored experiences in Windows 11.

Microsoft collects information about your Windows devices through a feature called Diagnostic data and feedback.

When you enable sending diagnostic data and feedback in Windows, Microsoft uses that diagnostic information to keep Windows secure and up to date, troubleshoot problems, and make product improvements.

There’s also a related feature called Tailored experiences that let’s use your Windows diagnostic data to offer you personalized tips, ads, and recommendations to enhance Microsoft experiences.

In diagnostic data collection settings, if Required is chosen, personalization is based on information about your device, its settings, capabilities, and whether it performs appropriately. 

Optional diagnostic data collection will be based on information about how you use apps and features, plus additional information about the health of your device.

Below is how to disable or enable Tailored experiences in Windows 11.

How to turn Off or On tailored experiences in Windows 11

As mentioned above, when you enable diagnostic data collection and tailored experiences in Windows, Microsoft uses your device’s diagnostic data to offer you personalized tips, ads, and recommendations to enhance Microsoft experiences.

Below is how to enable or disable it.

Windows 11 has a centralized location for the majority of its settings. As a result, everything can be done, from system configurations to creating new users and updating Windows from its System Settings pane.

To get to System Settings, you can use the Windows key + I shortcut or click on Start ==> Settings, as shown in the image below:

Alternatively, you can use the search box on the taskbar and search for Settings. Then select to open it.

Windows Settings pane should look similar to the image below. For example, click Privacy & Security in Windows Settings, then select the Diagnostics & feedback tile on the right pane, as highlighted in the image below.

On the Privacy & security > Diagnostics & feedback settings pane, select Tailored experiences to expand.

Then toggle the On and Off switch to enable or disable Tailored experiences in Windows 11.

Alternatively, open Local Group Policy Editor by clicking on the Start Menu and searching for Edit group policy, as highlighted below.

Under Best match, select Edit group policy to launch Local Group Policy Editor.

In the left pane of Local Group Policy Editor, expand the tree: 

User Configuration > Administrative Templates > Windows Components > Cloud Content

Then, locate and double-click the setting in the Cloud Content details pane on the right. Do not use diagnostic data for tailored experiences.

In the Do no use diagnostic data for tailored experiences setting window, set the option to Enabled or Disabled.

Select OK.

Close Local Group Policy Editor.

That should do it!
