Settings and Features You Should Never Disable in WIndows 10

by Abubakar Musa Usman
Windows 10 is jam-packed with a whole range of features that you’ll be sure to love so if you have just got yourself a new fresh installed. Being loaded with so many features that make it not for everyone thing because of the data it suck especially when you are not on Wi-Fi network.
It was exciting to see updates because of how infrequent and dramatic they’d be. However, when Windows 10 was unveiled to the public in September 2014, that all changed – now over 700 million people have installed Windows 10. After its initial launch, Windows 10 would not only take over as Microsoft’s only operating system, but as an ongoing project that would receive four major overhauls in the following years.
Because of this reason this made so many people are disabling some features in Windows 10 in order to help them manage their bandwidth especially those who are not Wi-Fi network but to be honest this is not a good idea because a security software alone cannot keep your computer secure without a secure operating system Installing windows updates is what make your computer secure.
For this scenario, we made a deep journey on what you should never disable if you really mean to increase productivity when using Windows OS.
Windows Updates
Windows Updates are periodic updates that are released by Microsoft for the purpose on installing on your operating system. When an operating system is installed, it frequently checks for critical and minor updates which is essential for making the operating system secure and function properly. Even though people off it because it sucks data but sometime it rather be enable than to take off due to reasons I said above.
It is safe to allow windows update to get installed automatically. In the past, windows update did have a reputation of creating problems after installing. But Microsoft did learn from their mistakes. In recent times there are not much cases of windows update creating major issues.
If you are still not comfortable with installing windows update automatically, you can change the windows update settings to Notify before Installing. This will allow you to check the available updates before installing.
A security software alone cannot protect your computer from malicious software’s and hackers. Security holes are usually present in every software, including the operating system and other applications in a computer. A hacker or malware programmer use these security loopholes to gain entrance into the computer and steal information. There are white hat hackers and security analysts around the globe who are constantly involved in reporting these threats to Microsoft. Microsoft even pays a bounty for reporting these threats.
So disabling Windows updates might not be good idea, think that you don’t have enough data to manage that, then you can schedule the update until when you are on Wi-Fi
Windows Sync
Keeping your mobile devices in sync is one of the best ways to help yourself stay productive when on-the-go!  If you use multiple devices – a laptop, a desktop, a smartphone, a tablet – it’s important to set up your accounts and tools to sync across all of them.  For example, if you use a virtual notebook, make sure your account is logged in on each of your devices and is set up to automatically sync.  By syncing across devices, you can…
  1. Reduce digital clutter and minimize saving duplicate copies on portable drives
  2. Stay productive on-the-go anywhere in the world
  3. Travel light and avoid packing multiple notebooks or paper files
  4. Collaborate as a mobile worker and keep up-to-date with team members on project status easily
  5. Save time having to catch up at the end of the day because you’ve been “in the loop” all along


PC Sync lets you effortlessly synchronize your important data between computers, so your computers always have the most up to date files it also allows the user to connect the phone to a computer with a cable and synchronize calendar and contact information between the phone and a computer application such as Outlook. So It may sound odd to disable such a hallmark feature in Windows. Thought this might sometimes be nightmare to you if you using cheap data to browse.
OneDrive is one of the other background apps in the Windows 10 that depletes your data in no time. It is indeed one of the most crucial apps in the Windows 10 OS disabling which can be a radical step, however, not many of us need it running in the background at all times. Yes, the One Drive does help you sync your files which make life simpler. When you have a file in your OneDrive, it’s not only easier for you to get to it, it’s also easier for you to let others get to it.
If you use a phone or tablet to take pictures and video, you can configure it to automatically upload them to OneDrive. This way your cherished memories will be preserved in the cloud. If you’re on vacation and you phone is lost or stolen, you can replace the phone, knowing that your files were already preserved. We have OneDrive clients for Windows Phone, iOS and Android.
Microsoft Updates preventproblems. Although there are occasions when updates cause a new issue to appear, generally speaking they “help” more than they “hurt”. Not only do Microsoft Updates fix known bugs in software and operating systems, but they plug critical security holes that could drastically affect your security. Microsoft vulnerabilities are actively exploited in countless viruses, which could have been easily prevented by maintaining updates.
The most common reason for using OneDrive is to upload or synchronize your local data to the cloud. This will give you one extra copy of your documents, pictures and videos, which you could use if your computer breaks. Remember the 3-2-1 rules: have 3 copies of your important files, 2 in different media, 1 in another site. For instance, you could have one copy of your files on your PC, one copy in an external drive and one copy in OneDrive
